I didn't meant it nihilistic. Maybe I used an incorrect statement, or only half of it. So I correct myself: There's nothing, but earth, air, fire and water. But that's far more than two words
Forgive the critical comments (not to point at anyone in particular, I did it too).
I don't think it's quite right to regard the four elements as some sort of fundamental particles of existence, (which seems to be what is going on in your statement) like some old Greek ideas. In Buddhism the four elements refer primarily to the form-aggregate, or that is to say the body, and also how the body is experienced, rather than what it is ultimately comprised of or anything like that. Take a look at the first half of this sutta: http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .than.html
