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. :)
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)


Exalted in mind, just open and clearly aware, the recluse trained in the ways of the sages:
One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7
