Is the universe made of the same substance?

General discussion, particularly exploring the Dharma in the modern world.
[N.B. This is the forum that was called ‘Exploring Buddhism’. The new name simply describes it better.]

All thoughts is Dharmakaya, all rabbit horns 'arise' from that, as this talk, 'arises' from that.

There is no such a thing as an Universe!

There is NOTHING!

The Blessed One said:

"What is the All? Simply the eye & forms, ear & sounds, nose & aromas, tongue & flavors, body & tactile sensations, intellect & ideas. This, monks, is called the All. Anyone who would say, 'Repudiating this All, I will describe another,' if questioned on what exactly might be the grounds for his statement, would be unable to explain, and furthermore, would be put to grief. Why? Because it lies beyond range." Sabba Sutta.

Hm. If there was nothing, we would not be able to have these discussions. Or speak at all. Or even exist.

Dependent origination-emptiness.
"According to the law of Dependent Origination, all phenomena are dependently originated (Paticcasamuppada). Buddhists see the world, not as a collection of isolated objects".
