Thanks for the story. My head hurts now. :tongue:

I'm very glad that practicing the Buddhist Path doesn't require mathematical thinking. :jumping:

It trembles in all directions.
I longed to find myself a place
Unscathed — but I could not see it."

An excellent article by the way and one that perhaps could be given to DW members and others who struggle with the meaning and nature of Nibbana.

Not if they struggled with maths at school. :shock:
I might share it with non-Buddhist mathematical people but not with non-mathematical Buddhist people.
Or neither - but not both. :smile:

THank you very much for sharing that with us, cooran.

I've always been impressed with the ideas of the great thinkers of our world. Thinking and speaking of the unthinkable and unspeakable; is it or is it not possible? Chaos! :anjali:

I think I can definitively say that it is possible to think of the unspeakable and speak of the unthinkable, but not at the same time.
