A "something which causes" is substance,

A "nothing which does" is a void.

There is a name, there is a substance

– Then it occupies a place with other things.

There is no name, there is no substance

– Then it occupies the void between things

What can be said, what can be conceived,

Recedes from it farther the more you say.

                              – Chuang Tzu
