The Ten Thousand Things

A few of the wisdom traditions mention the notion of
The Ten Thousand Things, a strange and bizarrely truncated term, referring to all the material world in which we usually live. If this is the case, what might be the ten-thousand-and-first thing? In an attempt to find out, this book begins by taking this number literally, slowly assembling images of random things. Surprisingly, this slow compositing delivers an answer that only a book might offer.
