Mahamati, as you now know, regarding the basic nature of things, there is neither coming about nor extinction. It is because of this common nature of emptiness that I call it non-birth. All that exists can exist only in close inter relationship with everything else and cannot exist standing completely alone. This is similar to the relationship between light and shadow, long and short, and white and black.
