His main source of self-support was trucking, but he had done a lot of construction as well, mostly residential, in his time. I remember him being excited one day because he had just met a man who had sold him a big house for a dollar. The catch was that the man merely sold him the house - he wanted it off his property. So my friend enlisted a buddy to help him knock it apart---they were going to cram it into a leased semi and haul it away. Some time later, after he had done this, I asked him what he was going to do with all the lumber. His reply was (he was from South Carolina): "Well, shee-it! I didn't buy no lumber - I bought me a house!" He was going to store it until he could find a place to put it back together and live in it. I asked him how he would know where everything went. He answered, "Because I just took the gol' dang thing apart! You ain't never done much construction, I can see that. It won't fit together but one way!"

This is just a heads up. Good luck in your lifetime.

Since everything is empty, nothing is real
Without space...form does not exist...form needs a space
since every phenomenal form inherently exists (dosn't exist by itself...but exists because of causes/conditions) it is dependant on something...not self dependant....
so the conclusion is :
Reality is an illusion
There is only empty space...and that is also an illusion....
TRUE REALITY can not be known.
It is the UNKNOWN......
But known/unknown is also false.
Don't think....it can't be found in conceptual thoughts.
If what you said is true, then your comment is irrelevant.

It is and it isn't.
It's relevant because it discloses concept as empty of inherent existence.
It's ultimately irrelevant because it too is empty of inherent existence.
play of causality.
A concept has meaning existentially.
In that way Wisdom is possible as a sorting out of the consequences the concept leaves in it's wake as it plays out in time and space and whether the concept is worth giving energy to.
The concept of an inwardly opening window in a house is unwise because it's found people walk in to them as they cross rooms sometimes.
The concept of an ass with translucent wings is equally stupid and not worth the energy.

Is the amateur the same guy as the 2 x 4.
Who's who over there.

At the forth of the first 4, you have the option to repeat 4, thus "2x4", or take a delta if you have "balls of steel".. but none of you mindless loveless hateful critters have it to survive even the first 4 seconds of the afterlife, so why even bother worrying about it..? Just go to the pub, and talk politics and sports, and get drunk, and screw someone in the john, or take someone home to screw...
