'Shunyata' is Sanskrit terminology referring to an absence of ego conceptualization, or emptiness in the absence of thought. 

"At the boundary, facing the truth of the infinite, to which I am truly connected.  That which understands through non-syntactical thought. Lit directly by a high-latitude sun, covered by shallow lakes, stretching from the edge of humanity to the edge of the earth.  

At the boundary, I sense a resolve.  Death looms less as and ‘end’. It’s like I’ve walked a thousand miles north to find where a singular individual resolves themselves, extinguishing all sirens for a free-floating bandit.

I have an affinity for high latitudes and oceanic boundaries – the boundary to the edge, as if that’s where all of humanity resolves itself, simply by addressing its limits."

At the boundary to the Polar Eternities, with my back towards Tahiti, a Shunyatan wind blows towards the frozen infinite, the great void, the emptiness that subconsciously connects all life, the dark ocean common connecting the light of a ship far out in the dark sea to the light of its home port. My Tahitian self disintegrates.
