Re: O-Sensei's Spiritual Achievements

When you tell somone a joke and they don't get it, they usually say, "That's stupid." Then, when they do "get it" they think, "Oh, that's really funny/ clever, etc."

Likewise, when someone like O-Sensei is speaking from a level we don't understand, it's easy to say he went nuts.

I read the article Josh linked in his post and while I didn't understand every word, I did recognize a few glimmers of truth. There's something very magical in our ability to even perceive many of the concepts it discussed.

OTOH, I have a nagging concern that all our efforts to become aware of our universe amount to nothing if it's just our collective "mind" filling in the blanks of something that's not real to begin with.

Too spooky?
