Greetings Ron,

Yes, I understand where you're coming from. I admit my preference is to analyse the world and its ways using the definitions of loka the Buddha provided, rather than in more conventional terms... but sometimes using conventional frames of reference can get the message across, albeit in a conventional way.

Metta,
Retro. :)
“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

"If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 50 years ago, a liberal 25 years ago and a racist today." (Thomas Sowell)
