gben,

You may think that speaking in riddles and paradoxes makes you enlightened. But all it shows is that you are clever, at best. Or you are very confused, at worst. Or a mix of both.

Sometimes you just have to admit you're wrong, confused, or ignorant in these "big question" matters. Getting some humility and calling BS on oneself is something some people never get around to in life. Don't be one of them. You're smarter than that.

Well, real is not virtual. And virtual is not real. But reality can have a virtual component and virtuality can have a real component. Meditation is about the reality of virtuality having a real component as much as it is about virtuality having a real component. But cultivating a real image requires a real object, even though cultivating a virtual image can be done by either a real or virtual object. But the fact is that virtual images are real. If not, why would anyone cultivate a virtually real object in reality? And I make as much sense as you do.

If you think nibbana is better than samsara, then you've missed the point - Ajahn Sumedho
