Therefore, in his case, the suppositions that he exists or does not exist are not possible. , the sense faculties and so on] is also simply designated; but apart from that, no other establishment [of it] is possible.

Because, in the sense stated, neither existence nor nonexistence is asserted, Madhyamaka is not a doctrine of nihilism, that is, of nonexistence.

This is simply a different verbal formulation of the same idea.
