Transformation starts with Mu

In the Japanese language, there is the word Mu, which means “lack off” or “not having”. It is a highly complicated word that for example can be used at the moment a yes or no answer to a question is inappropriate.

It is used when we have not yet found a form(noun, thing, technology, meaning, idea) for something. It is too early for having a yes or no question. We are still in the stage of lacking. It is this “pre-binary” stage in which space and time are needed to have the answer emerge.

It is our willingness to open time and space that starts transformation.
