Buddhist Dictionary

by late Ven. Nyanatiloka Thera:

acinteyya: lit. 'That which cannot or should not be thought, the unthinkable, incomprehensible, impenetrable, that which transcends the limits of thinking and over which therefore one should not ponder. These 4 unthinkables are: the sphere of a Buddha (buddha-visaya), of the meditative absorptions (jhāna-visaya), of kamma-result (kamma-vipāka), and brooding over the world (loka-cintā), especially over an absolute first beginning of it (see AN 4.77).

“Therefore, o monks, do not brood over the world as to whether it is eternal or temporal, limited or endless ….

Such brooding, O monks, is senseless, has nothing to do with genuine pure conduct (see ādibrahmacariyaka-sīla), does not lead to aversion, detachment, extinction, nor to peace, to full comprehension, enlightenment and Nibbāna, etc.” SN 56.41
