I didn't intend for this threat to turn so volatile. Is there any way I can ask the Moderators to close this thread now?

If that sorriness is an apology Mawkish1983, I accept it. I think you should carefully examine where attachments to, aversions to and identifications with labels inevitably leads us all and reconsider your intentions in keeping with that. I think we all should.
But whoever walking, standing, sitting, or lying down overcomes thought, delighting in the stilling of thought: he's capable, a monk like this, of touching superlative self-awakening. § 110. {Iti 4.11; Iti 115}
