Good, Good, Good, Good Translations. . .

Is there really very much to say about "Nothingness"?

I'm told that these words of wisdom - "Out of Sight, Out of Mind" - have been mistranslated many times into other languages as: "Blind and Crazy"!

But this may be merely a translator's "Urban Myth"! Or some insight of Borges.

Meanwhile: Is there really very much to say about "Nothingness"?

If you are setting me up for a joke, I'd say, "It was nothing much."

But, in all seriousness, it is a fascinating book.

Both were expected, and both masterfully delivered. Thanks.
