I would like to think that I would keep on pretty much as usual. What I would actually do, however, I just don't know.
Right. I also don't know what I would actually do. But I like to think that I would use every second following the eight-fold path. But since I believe the world is not going to end tomorrow I am not following the path to my best.

I think Arthur C Clarke should have done a bit more research. There is no supreme being in Vajrayana.
Yes, I know. That part of it fits much better with Kabbalah.
But it's still a good story.

I knew this would end the world!
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
