Shunya is zero. It is also the all-pervasive universal element (ether, akash, space).
It represents the space between something and nothing.
The new paradigms for sustainability require a synthesis of the scientific and the spiritual worldviews which until now have been talked of as contradictory. It is on this edge of everything we know and have known, that ideas and visions for the new world will emerge. We need a new consciousness for this new world and shunya is the journey towards this evolution and the discovery of the nuances of the outside and the inside.
