Great post Vishvavajra.

Emptiness of inherent existence is also interdependence though. Gaze into the spoon, and the spoon also gazes into you. The metaphor of Indra's net suggests this. It has the same kind of reality that self does, which is to say not in the jewels, but in their reflection of each other, their interlinking and interactions. We create spoons, but spoons help create human-ness.
