'May the rule of that soverign lord of the Jinas prosper, who has destroyed the position of single conclusions and propounds the logic of the syadvada. The syadvada ... is an argument that the world of appearances may or may not be real, or both may and may not be real--or may be indescribable; or may be real and indescribable, or unreal and indescribable; or in the end may be real and unreal and indescribable.' ---From Robert Kaplan, The Nothing That Is.
