In an article I read recently, someone explains how Apple has succeeded in the computer and high-tech world by following what the writer calls the Zen notion of « leaving things out, » rather than adding many features, in the innovative products that they introduce — everything from the iMac without a floppy disk drive to the iPad without USB ports, etc.
It seems to me, however, that this « leaving things out » is not really about excluding, as the article says, but rather about including everything that is necessary. Which means seeing things as they are and not « adding » anything extra. Which means not grasping, not catering to the limitations of our insatiable hungry mind but rather opening to our mind’s basic spaciousness.
There is not a piece missing from that apple on the logo; that bite makes the apple whole.
