One cannot judge these inconceivable manifestations or materialize them as occurring only in a certain way within time and place.

There are countless different beings, different faculties, and different stages of realization, so there are many categories of wisdom. There is wisdom that relies on compounded circumstances such as accumulation when all root and contributing circumstances gather together perfectly and wisdom occurs, and there is also self-manifesting wisdom that does not rely on compounded circumstances.
To decide that something will always be the way it is, even though nothing solid exists, is the view of always. If one looks at one’s own ordinary mind, it does not stay in a solid state in that way. One’s own ordinary mind is going to change; there is not just one conception. To decide that there is nothing other than what is perceived is the view of nothing. If one looks at one’s own ordinary mind, it is not inert; something continually appears. Buddhism’s view is beyond the view of always and beyond the view of nothing.
Even so, it cannot be denied that nihilists will be reborn within the realms of cyclic existence, since they have continuous mind and its habit. Since theirs is not a positive spiritual habit of belief, they must unavoidably follow the karma created by their disbelief. The positive potential of their Buddha nature and spiritual qualities of mind may remain dormant for many lives, so that it may take many eons for them to realize their Buddha nature. According to the Mahayana, it cannot be said that nihilists always remain nihilists or eternalists always remain eternalists, because they can change through the influence of previous positive karmic connections, prayers, or blessings.
