Exactly, Ku can be describe also as one of the essential character of life such as our knowledge, emotions, ideas, thoughts. Even the DNA,the information that contains within it is in the state of Ku.

The idea of ku in Mahayana Buddhism is the reality of all things depending on the interconnections of kechi-en(jp), which indicates the causal relationships that join every phenomenon to all others. Nothing can exist in isolation. Take the traditional Japanese arts of tea ceremony, flower arranging, folding screens, haiku, and linked verse; all have full meaning only when placed in a space in ordinary life. They achieve their value from the connections they establish with the space around them.

Ku is the source of the dynamism of what we call "creative life"--that impulse to go beyond the limits of space and time in pursuit of the universal self. In breaking through to achieve self-renewal in tune with the universe, the creative life brings about a transformation. In the words of Rene Huyghe of the Academie Francaise: "We are connected with the totality and united with the creative action of the future, toward which the universe advances." Ku as Neutral, however, does not mean void or empty. Far from being vacant or void, our lives are manifestations of the cosmic life itself, eternal and filled to overbrimming with the energy of creation.
