Nothing is something.
This statement holds all the possible ramifications of the assessment of Being to its orientations. And from the dual meaning that arises in this statement, all problems and solutions exist.
It is not merely meaning, because that represents only one of the two orientations then.
But meaning is the main issue through which, if the truth is to be understood, must be confronted.
Something is always something else; nothing is always something.
It is the question of orientation upon the universe. Less what meaning is made, more when that meaning is challenged.
Orientation upon things concerns two basic questions;
what are we dealing with?
What are we trying to accomplish?
If these two questions are not stated, then they are assumed. We thus have one thing we are dealing with: Reality is thus the teleo-ontological assumption of a common sense of being human and the universe.
Without this assumption implicit to every statement and thought, no reality arises. It is then just a bunch of things doing stuff; reality is complicit with an agenda.
So then the next question involved in that truth — it is a truth because no argument can be made against it without implying that its meaning is operative:
What are we trying to accomplish by the assumed common arena ?
We are dealing with the truth of reality for the purpose of Being mentally healthy.
This is a anthropology of philosophy.
