There is no case that could be mine as there is no case that could be yours. :sage:

So what is the case then, as bits and bytes continue to roll supported? Natures case? The case of nothinglessness? Could case via is case?
Just that! *smile*
...We Buddhists must find the courage to leave our temples and enter the temples of human experience, temples that are filled with suffering. If we listen to Buddha, Christ, or Gandhi, we can do nothing else. The refugee camps, the prisons, the ghettos, and the battlefields will become our temples. We have so much work to do. ...

BUT! it is important to become a real Buddhist first. Like Punna did: Punna Sutta Nate sante baram sokham _()_

The "case" is actually a consciousness in the sphere of "your" aggregates although these are not "yours" but just indicated as "yours" in the sphere of conscious language. :sage:

Conditioned consciousness arising from formations in the sphere of ignorance ... if these words spoken would be taken as true at face value. But since there is great doubt as to anything that arises nothing whatsoever that arises is taken at face value. But this again is said in the sphere of conscious lanuage only since there is no being at all that could take or not take anything at face value :sage:
