The logical use of ’emptiness’ as a Buddhist concept is to show us that the World we inhabit is constructed. We construct the World that we experience through our senses, perceptions, consciousness and concepts. As well, our shared World is socially constructed. But beyond this constructed World is Reality, which we call Nature, which is not constructed. It is Conditioned, i.e. dependently originated, as all things are conditioned, but not constructed.
