Re: People you have on your ignore list should not trigger notifications

It's obviously a flaw that a user having opted to ignore another is to be notified of their activity.

Re: covid vaccine: yea or nay?

Another thought experiment showing the absurdity of forced vaccinations is that say i off into the forest for 20 years and not exposed to pathogens. Is anyone actually "forcing" you to take the vaccine? This argument looks like a :strawman: to me. And even if you could isolate yourself for an exten...

Re: Frank Yang is DONE!

I've followed Frank for more than 10 years. I was quite glad when he started speaking about real breakthroughs but the excitement was shortlived as his language went from ambiguous to crystalized kin to Daniel Ingram's method of expression. I've no interest in listening to him until he familiarizes...

Re: Buddhism and Science. Are they compatible?

Compatible in what sense? You certainly don't have to reject any scientific facts as i see it but science is also theoretical and there are many wrong popular ideas & ideas that few people fully understand as they are only for those with eyes to see. Also science can be very good at removing wrong v...

Re: covid vaccine: yea or nay?

It's not that i don't believe in vaccines in general, i think we need to analyse. I also encourage ppl to believe in kamma more so than newly developed pharmaceutical products. If i was 70 year old i wouldn't take this even. Another thought experiment showing the absurdity of forced vaccinations is ...

Re: covid vaccine: yea or nay?

I voted no with conditions. I have a health disorder which puts me in the risk group for serious adverse effects and i am not thrilled about a 1:10000 proposition let alone worse odds. I think the argument that 'we vaccinate you because you have no right to endanger the public' is flawed because peo...

Re: what u think of tantra?

i think it is very dangerous and leads people to a bad place, ie a question might arise for some people; 'if tantra is not sex and is a tool for enlightenment then why can not children who can get enlightened (7+) practice tantra which is a tool for enlightenment?'. I think this is also why some of ...

Re: What causes the arising of another perception in jhāna?

One can say; it's kamma coming into play; or 'it's the result kamma to be experienced as pleasant or as unpleasant or as neither-pleasant-nor-unpleasant feeling that is coming into play according to prior development'. This eventuality we called kamma one can speak of in many ways, as new kamma, as ...

Re: Is the world just a projection of the mind?

From "Concept and Reality in Early Buddhist Thought", by Ven. K. Ñāṇananda: "'The world, the world,' O Lord, they call it. In what sense, O Lord, is there a world or a concept of a world? Wherever, Samiddhi, there is the eye, the visible forms, the visual consciousness and the things perceptible wi...
