This brief and simplified discernment is to elaborate on ancient metaphors and paraphrases such as:
Due to yet developed epistemology and ontology as well as complementary sciences and technology, much beliefs were based on superstition as well as paradoxical and contradictory concepts such as mind is formless stream of consciousness (which also accommodate beliefs in incarnation and re-incarnation) rather than mind is form-formless or parts of subtle body-mind. And which was why throughout the millenniums, sages had used inspired and encouraged words such as "Go Inward", "Seek Within", and "Know Thyself". And ":Thy Shall Know Nature". And other metaphors and paraphrases as well as such as:
"Truth Would Save Thy", "Truth Would Free Thy", "Go Inward", "Be Still", "Seek Within", "Know Thyself", "The Kingdom of Heaven is Within", "Truth Is In The Essence, Nature, and Ground of Being", "Truth Is In The Essence, Nature, and Ground of Nature", "Truth Is Within", "Truth is in the Heart", "Knowing is in the Heart", "Dependent and Interdependent Origination", "Dependent and Interdependent Arising". And such as https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZndH1JNFLPM would be more obvious when the empirical data about the essence, nature, and ground of being embedded in the essence, nature, and ground of nature are revealed or provided through the scientific method and process. While heartful care and mindful care ways of life and wisdom practices such as 8 Noble Path (and related precepts and tenets) or equivalent ways and practices are to best maximize and optimize meanigful transformation of the many sentient composite body-mind system or form-formless potentialities possibilities in the known physical world. And beyond due to diverse dynamic and interactive material and immaterial bio-transmutation processes and mechanisms facilitating by the greater whole in the local and non-local cosmos.
