Where does Silence come from?

Can you point to anything and say, with complete certainty, that it is “you”? Can you point to any thought, and say, I AM that? Can you point anywhere on your body, and say, I AM that? Can you point to anything and say that IT is “you”?

What happens when attention shifts to the one asking the question? Where is this question emanating from? What is the source of everything that appears? Yes, the mind can answer using words, but the words themselves cannot tell you “who made them.” Look deeper. Where does silence come from? (This is a zen-koan, so don’t look to mind for the answer.)
