One of the disadvantages of the concept of boxes is that it promotes that fragmentation of thought, and possibly of reality, that militates against any understanding of wholeness. Even in its most fundamental form there is a dichotomy inherent in the boxes idea. It seems all too easy to slip from talking of a box as a purely subjective thing,(the box within which each individual might think), on the one hand, and a box which encloses a particular mind set or trend of thought on the other. These two are obviously quite different.
There never was nothing.
