“We all write our own life-story regardless of age, gender or cultural conditioning.”
The 0 (nil) card of the ‘Nan Yar – Who Am I’ game for personal development is The Storyteller, the personification of the I-consciousness or Higher Self; not to be confused with the Ego which is more our daily life manager who selects the do’s and don’s and will’s or wont’s.
In the Tarot, the nil card is called The Fool. Essentially the Fool represents the blank slate, unencumbered by age, gender or cultural background. The Fool is also a person who is free of convention and unwritten rules. At the courts of the Middle Age the fool was one who, under cover of banter and humor, could speak the truth to kings and queens or courtiers. Because of its ‘foolishness’, it was considered ignorant, it wasn’t seen as a threat. In the meantime, however, it observes everything from its unique perspective, and is able to give close consideration to all of the events that pass by, without any attachment to outcome; open to all possible scenario’s; including the one that will fulfill the most; the one the Storyteller may as yet be unaware of. With The Storyteller, all storylines are on offer, because they are not judged, opinionated or controlled by expectation. The Storyteller remains, above all else, itself at all time.
What would you do right now, if nobody but YOU would depend on your actions? What do you think? What do you feel? How do you act?
Non-judgmental, in contact with itself, free of cultural conditioning, humorous, knows how to relax.

Every number has a unique energy, and therefore a unique meaning and role in the interpretation of the card, in combination with the color or the archetype.
Nil is a unique number which exists completely independently. It can’t be divided by anything, and doesn’t allow itself to be increased or decreased. None of the other numbers can exercise influence on the nil. The nil always remains itself.
