Can you elaborate on that a little bit? I'd google it (ok let me go see..)
The significance of neti neti
Neti Neti, meaning, "Not this, Not this", is the method of Vedic analysis of negation. It is a keynote of Vedic inquiry. With its aid the Jnani
negates identification with all things of this world which is not the Atman, in this way he negates the Anatman. Through this gradual process he
negating the mind and transcends all worldly experiences that are negated till nothing remains but the Self. He attains union with the Absolute by
denying the body, name, form, intellect, senses and all limiting adjuncts and discovers what remains, the true “I” alone. L.C.Beckett in his
book, Neti Neti, explains that this expression is an expression of something inexpressible, it expresses the ‘suchness’ (the essence) of that
which it refers to when ‘no other definition applies to it’. Neti neti negates all descriptions about the Ultimate Reality but not the Reality
itself. Inuitive interpretation of uncertainty principle can be expressed by "Neti neti" that annihilates ego and the world as non-self
(Anatman), it annihilates our sense of self altogether.
Yep, you grok, you get the joke, the humor of understanding, g wiz for a minute there I thought you were wagging a disapproving finger at me, as if to
say tsk tsk, while shaking your head in disappointment, but no you get it.
You'd better be good for goodness' sake!
