From that perspective, “to rest in nonconceptual, open, ‘don’t know’ mind” isn’t so much to stop or transcend thinking as to simply let thoughts be “just thoughts” and to know that the mind is doing its thing. Thinking is simply what the mind does, in the same way that ears hear and eyes see.
is about?
One talks about the middle way between ultimate truth and mundane in which he says there are no mountains and rivers, so in essence the “correct” answer is that there is nothing.
Ermm, did you miss the end of that lesson?

That's the exact opposite of nothing.
I'm not even going to bother reading that link, as going by your reading of that first article, I'm sure you've misinterpreted what it says.
But I can say for sure there are plenty of articles on those publications that deride imagination as choosing to be unconscious and living in illusion.
Then cite one that explicitly says that. Quote from it, where it says that.
