There is some truth in this in that I am influenced by the medieval book, "The Cloud of Unknowing", written by the same person who built the medieval cathedrals, namely, Anonynous.

And entering the cloud of unknowing is a precursor to unconditional listening.

no, that is not the intent of the word i meant to convey, as true as it may be.

a dogan is the room the mind retreats to when not functionally cognating. it is your internal study, your internal library, the place of quiet (or not so quiet) contemplation.
