The point was we don’t HEAR a sound of no thing. The sound is not “empty.” The “intention” in this sense (intentionality) is the subjects not some otherness.

I’d rather you didn’t agree. If you agreed then we’d have bery little to talk about. As for Kant and Buddhism, you do appear to confuse your opinion with that of others - I guess we all do though to some degree though.

My focus is religion at the moment. There we have very different opinions. I’ve been having a hard time trying to capture the most useful concepts to present my views though.

It was only a clarification; not a criticism.
Trees fall in the forest make a bloody racket whether we are there to hear them or not. But when we do the sound is never neutral - it has to have meaning for us. When in a forest we have to know what that sound is and our primal sense is a ask if there is a danger.

I'm bound to suggest that religion ultimately has NO useful concepts and you might be on a fool's errand.

If you think trying to understand something better is a fool’s errand I am baffled. And the rest is missing the point of what “intentionality” is to Husserl.
