Is the short answer that in doing we begin to understand?
That's actually an interesting response to me, but I think it's important to know what one "should" be "doing" in the first place....

I've always had a hard time finding a concept to fit "the void." What do you think?
This is a big subject, in a sense, but one can start with this - not to be cryptic but - a beginning can be found in the space between the thoughts - the notion that some sort of valuable experience is to be had outside of "one's rational mind."

seek instead what they sought."
