In it's utimate aspect cognition is limitless due to it's being synonymous with pure awareness, nonconceived and without particulars of conceptuality or discursion. As such, this unlimited aspect as cognition is still not changed as a result of discursion, conceptuality or particularization(s), suffering/not-suffering, samsara and nirvana notwithstanding their actual inseparability. This comes to be termed recognition as it becomes (merely) reflective of it's own innate purity, and recognizant of it's inherent potentiality as particulars, or - all things. Nonetheless, all things...each and every single 'thing' whatsoever...are as spontaneous and nameless within and as themselves as they are even in their recognition as particulars, each with an infinite array of attributes which come to be defined as a direct result of such recognitions and reflections.
