The Void does not mean that there is ultimately nothing at all but that there is ultimately nothing within finite human intellectual and sense perception. We cannot strictly assert that reality is this or that because the moment we make such an assertion we imply that finite reason knows enough about infinite reality to make it. However, although it is true that we cannot describe this state except in negative terms, that need not deter us from searching for symbols and similes which have an intellectually positive character, so long as we understand that they are only symbols and similes.
