Pervading all appearance

It’s interesting that what I consider was the key remark in the discussion in the last class about what knowing pervades hasn’t found its way into the ‘chat notes’ (probably because it was spoken, rather than typed into the chat box). The discussion started with Ken writing: Knowing pervades. Pervades what? Where?  I suggested that knowing ‘pervades everything, everywhere’. Then Hayward quietly went a step more precise by saying that it pervades ‘all appearance(s)’. This is helpful, and more accurate, because it takes us out of the subject/object; solid-matter/space dichotomies. Language can be so obscuring and so clarifying. Learning to use it well seems to me to be a key challenge to TSK practitioners. Thank you, everyone, for these rich and illuminating discussions.
