Koans

Zen Koan: What was the face you had before you were born?
What came before the Big Bang?

Zen Koan: What is the sound of one hand clapping?
What happened to the antimatter created when the universe was born?

Buddhist saying: Emptiness is form, form is emptiness.
Rutherford's discovery that 99% of an atom is space.
Alternatively, energy equals matter times the speed of light squared.

Always loved the sound of one hand clapping.

One answer to the one hand clapping I once read was "a fist". The protagonist was a martial artist.
