The void is indescribable through language. An attempt to describe it defeats the purpose, for it subtracts from it’s meaning, or presents a schism, categorization of some sort where there isn’t any, or falls short by encapsulating a part of it.
“We constantly seek to find, in the Quality event, analogues to our previous experiences. If we didn’t we’d be unable to act. We build up our language in terms of these analogues. We build up our whole culture in terms of these analogues.” – Pirsig
“Whenever you parry, hit, spring, strike or touch the enemy’s cutting sword, you must cut the enemy in the same movement. It is essential to attain this. If you think only of hitting, springing, striking or touching the enemy, you will not be able actually to cut him. ” – Miyamoto Musashi
“We look at it, and we do not see it, and we name it “the Equable” We listen to it, and we do not hear it, and we name it “the Inaudible.” We try to grasp it, and do not get hold of it, and we name it “the Subtle.” With these three qualities, it cannot be made the subject of description” – Lao Tzu
