Emptyness isn't empty in the way you'd say to yourself, "There's nothing there at all."
There are things there: the eye sees sight, the ear hears sound, and so on.
They're empty simply in that the mind doesn't enter in to label them, to concoct anything out of them, liking or disliking them, that's all.
They're empty in that the mind is free from attachment.
