All find themselves in One

vertical line I am beginning work on a painting of snowflakes in the woods, where detail and size of each flake begins with canvas size and shape of just one flake as a circle.

Now am going to study flake origins,

from the beginning of dust.

vertical line

perhaps is not one or two or three , perhaps is beyond the understanding of "one" as comparison to two , perhaps as long as there is knowledge of what is "one" we will tied down with own knowledge and always in a circle of own confusion , perhaps Buddhism is beyond all knowledge , beyond the understanding or acceptance of "one"...........leading to freedom of all knowledge , realization of what is knowledge and freedom of own emotion ..........thats my current understanding of Buddhism.

One = the buddha

Two = he is neither the Buddha nor is he not the Buddha

Three = so, on one hand he is the Buddha and on the other hand he neither is the Buddha nor is he not the Buddha. What a contradiction.

Four = where the hell are these numbers leading me?

Five = five gives one a value by contrasting

Six = if one stood alone and had no value via contrast, what would one be?
