What is the Source of all things? In this talk, Michael pushes the limits of language by discussing the nature of Emptiness as it relates to the human experience. How is it that the experience of Emptiness is paradoxically so full, thus inspiring mystical teachings for millenia. And how does the experience of Emptiness relate to our physical senses as well as our sense of time and mind? What is beyond our sense of time and mind anyway? The great sage Nagarjuna offers some guidance along this path leading toward what Michael calls the Ninth Sense.
