Beyond what can be seen

File:Giardino Ryoan-ji.jpg

At Ryoan-ji in Kyoto there is a famous rock garden;

Wherever in it a person stands, one of the fifteen rocks cannot be seen.

The garden reminds that always something unknowable is present, just beyond what can be perceived or comprehended – and that something is as much part of the real as any other stone amid the raked gravel.
