A question to Buddhists

Postby jan Pilo » Mon Sep 05, 2016 5:08 pm

How would you say
- emptiness, is empty
- form, has form, is formless
?
Possibly other philosophers.

Possibly other philosophers. (I know Kipo's opinions and want others to express theirs first and without suggestions.)


Toki!

I would try and use "lupa" as "empty", "hollow". (I try to see "hole" as something "hollow".)
"(outer) form" is "selo" according to the Official Dictionary. "something having form" should therefore be "ijo selo" and something formless should be "ijo pi selo ala".

... just a little brain storming, not hindered by any authority nor assumptions. There can be many choices, most are good already. However, it's often the good that prevents people from finding better.

These are material representations of the ideas or maybe sources of metaphora. I just wonder if the metaphors are typically western.
"something having no content" ("no essence"?)
form as "something being just pure external trait" (?)
