Movement can only be perceived when there is affirmation of self. Emptiness of self entails emptiness of movement.  :fu:

So what would your version be?

Whatever is posited as X in the statement 'There is only X' if that X does not cover the statement as such then the outcome necessarily is an inconsistent statement.
That means that there are some X which may be applied that entail a consistent statement provided that the statement is understood to be self-referential. E.g. If X = 'emptiness' then the statement 'There is only emptiness' has to be understood to be an emptiness itself. Or if X = 'imputation' then the statement 'There is only imputation' has to be understood to be an imputation itself.

If the word "wibble" means something along the line of Blackadder sticking a couple pencils up his nose and saying "wibble, wibble", then I agree.  Whole Heartedly.  :lmfao: :lmfao:
