Allow me to explain that since UA is influenced by Buddhist and Hindu philosophy, I believe they are referring to “the void” in Buddhist philosophy, or the transcendent, the absolute reality, or God, whatever we may want to call it. Arthur Schopenhauer said: there is transcendental knowledge, and imminent knowledge. Transcendental knowledge exceeds human experience, like death, or perception of electricity like sharks, etc etc. Imminent knowledge exists purely within the shackles of human experience, which is everything we know and see and will ever know and see. When you die, that is the end of you as an individual, but your innermost being is much more beautiful and eternal and infinite in time and space. Your real being knows neither time, nor beginning, nor end, nor yet the limits of any given individual. It is everywhere present in every individual; and no individual can exist apart from it. So when death comes, on the one hand you are annihilated as an individual; on the other, you are and remain everything.
