If understanding we know nothing, is the beginning of knowledge, would by default understanding that we are nothing, be the beginning of becoming?

Short post perhaps, but full of possible conversation.

Hey i like it. Simple.

Ill do a mantra tonight when i meditate. It will go like this....

I am nothing

I know nothing

You said "supposed knowledge is ego driven, and therefore insane.
only through nothingness can you see the light"

ego: the one of the three divisions of the psyche in psychoanalytic theory that serves as the organized conscious mediator between the person and reality especially by functioning both in the perception of and adaptation to reality.

If we go with Einsteins definition of insanity, then reality can not exist. For only by repeating the same action over and over and expecting different results are we insane. For it would be the perception of reality that would create the need to "define" reality through knowledge, thereby pleasing the ego, continually coming up with nothing more real than before?

So what are you saying? That without ego, we have nothing, and in nothing we have everything?

Well ego is the part of us that defines who we are in a sense. It could be labeled as, the outward display of our perception of, and adaptation to reality. So if we make no attempt to enhance our "ego" through the gaining of knowledge to prove reality, we may essentially become outwardly nondescript, what some might term "humble".
