On Nothingness


Video of Alan Watts speaking about “nothingness”.

“You may think this place is rather weird. That’s because I’ve always loved weird things. I remember when I was a little boy people used to say to me, ‘Alan, you are so weird. Why Can’t you be like other people?’ Well, I thought that was just plain dull.”


“What has stuck me is that nothing, the negative, the empty, is obscenely powerful. Nothing is more fertile than emptiness.”
