The overwhelming nature of complexity

All honest seekers of understanding are eventually overwhelmed by complexity. This is painful as it requires a us to leap reason and accept we are without the mental apparatus to comprehend the world we live in or even the body we inhabit. We can only accept it and live in the moment by letting our complexity live in the complexity.
To combat the pain of this loss I used paradoxes to reassure my mind of its limited function. As it often still likes to think it’s in control. My favourite paradox is this – There is no such thing as nothing. So even the word nothing is something and as a consequence isn’t nothing. So although I think I believe in nothing – that’s impossible. Even that very thought isn’t nothing. There is no such thing.
