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. :)
“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”
