What lies behind the name

A name is imposed on
what is thought to be a
thing or a state and this
divides it from other things
and other states. But when
you pursue what lies behind
the name, you find a
greater and greater subtlety
that has no divisions.
Atoms of dust are not really
atoms of dust but are
merely called that. In the
same way, a world is not a
world but is merely called
that.

~ Buddhaghosa ~ [Visuddhi Magga]
