Hmmmm. It is coherent to me, in a sense. The Heart Sutra says much the same thing, frankly. Have you considered that coherence is a yardstick for rational, conceptual mind? Precisely the sort of think Nagarjuna, and the Buddha, set out to circumvent?
Well, this seems to bring us very neatly to the quote in Malcolm's signature because I would have replaced the word "circumvent" with "transcend". Could you please explain why the notion of transcendence is a problem Malcolm? I have the idea that by transcending the conceptual mind you would arrive at the primordial state.
PS "arrive" is probably not the right word but I can't think of a better one at the minute.
