The “No mind” concept of Zen is impossible to achieve in any living creature.
Levels of awareness and attunement are all we can consciously and subconsciously alter.
Zen takes one back to birth/prebirth/conception. However, the real you is who you are at this moment. Any moment.
Thus Zen fails to explain it all by trying to use words to achieve what words cannot achieve. Yet.
