What if there is nothing But veils? Should one disturb their whole perception to discover the deep nothing at the heart of everything? Perhaps. But one is left rebuilding what was destroyed afterwards, realizing that only illusion exists.
“You must not grieve that the world is glimpsed
Through veils. How else can it be seen?
How will you rip away the veil of the eye, the veil
That you are, you who want to grasp the heart
Of things, hungry to know where meaning
— Suji Kwock Kim, “Monologue for an Onion”
If you rip away the veils, would you not find disappointment anyway? Perhaps one should find some veils whose colours and textures seem preferable, to defer that disappointment. Add and remove patterns as preferred. Cover them, layer them with other veils and see what happens.
