The culmination of these efforts is a thought-free state wherein no impressions arise either externally from the senses or internally from the reason. The consequence is that the felt contrast between the "I" and the "not-I" melts away like sugar in water and only the sense of Being remains--Being which stretches out wide and still like the infinitude of space. This is the Void.
