“Can there be a completely different set of laws of physics in a different universe, or do the laws of physics as we understand them hold true in all possible universes? If the answer is that a different set of laws can operate in a different universe system, this would suggest (from a Buddhist perspective) that even the laws of physics are entangled with the karma of the sentient beings that will arise in that universe.”

“El mundo, según la filosofía del vacío, está compuesto por una red de realidades interrelacionadas y de origen interdependiente, en cuyo seno unas causas de origen interdependiente dan lugar a unas consecuencias de origen interdependiente, de acuerdo con unas leyes de causalidad de origen interdependiente. Lo que hacemos y lo que pensamos en nuestra vida, por lo tanto, adquiere una importancia extraordinaria, puesto que afecta todo aquello con lo que no relacionamos.”
