What is it all about?  It is like asking 'What's the pit in the middle of the onion?' And, you take off all the skin, and so on, and so on, and so on... And suddenly you find you've got a litter of skins and no pit.  There wasn't anything in it.  You might say, 'Well, that's a hoax.  Life is a deception; a tale told by an idiot.' And yet, what you had missed in looking for the pit, were the beautiful skins.  See, that's the edible part of the onion.
