Sigh. Maybe I should give up Buddhism and start a button collection. At least I have some idea how to go about collecting buttons.

Cup is apprehended, mind fabrication.
A Bodhisattva understands aggregates are empty, is acting on signs of conventionalities and doesn't have faith in the peaceful state of non-production. Still clinging, the kind of little boss inside must keep control over all, as otherwise there is "nothing"?
All is dependent originated = lack on inherent existence.

"A consciousness cognising an emptiness necessarily ascertains the mere negative or absence of the object of negation. => clear vacuity accompagnied by the mere thought. (Mirror of mind.)

A teacher will guide toward clarity here about, rather than making concept-soup.
