In Memorium

I am not subject to space, therefore I know no 'where', I am not subject to time, therefore I know no 'when', What space-time is I am, and nothing finite appertains to me.

Being nowhere I am every 'where', being everywhere I am no 'where', For I am neither any 'where' nor no 'where', Neither inside nor outside any thing or no thing, Neither above nor below, before nor after, at either side of any or no thing.

I do not belong to that which is perceptible or knowable, Since perceiving and knowing is what I am, I am not beyond hither or thither, within or without, Because they too are what I am.

I am not extended in space, I am not developed in duration; All these are my manifestations, all these are conceptual images of what I am, For it is my absence, my absolute absence, which renders concepts conceivable.

I am ubiquitous, both as absence and as presence, Since, as I, I am neither present nor absent. I can never be known as an object in mind, For I am what is knowing, and even 'mind' is my object.
