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. :)
