    Shih - thing, event, entity, object, process

    Su – no

    Ai – obstruction, block, boundry



    Shih shih wu ai – “Between every event and thing in the universe there is no boundry.”

    "In the infinite Dharmadhatu, each and every thing simultaneously includes all in perfect complition, without the slightest deficiency or ommission, at all times. To see one object is, therefore, to see all objects, and vice versa. This is to say a tiny individual particle within the minute cosmos of an atom actually contains the infinite objects and principles in the infinite universes of the future and of the remote past in perfect completeness without omission" - Garma Chang

    "The two basic theories of modern physics thus exhibit all the main features of the Eastern world view. Quantum theory has abolished the notion of fundamentally seperated objects, has introduced the concept of the participator to replace that of the observer, and has come to see the universe as an interconnected web of relations whose parts are only defined through their connection to the whole." - Fritjof Capra
