I think to see that these questions lead nowhere is closer to what the Buddha taught than the answer itself. I guarantee you, this lead...

What does man as fact mean to you?

What does man as fiction mean to you?

Re: Judgement

I don't understand it either. Are you asking whether the Buddha actually existed and taught, as opposed to being a fiction? Or are you asking whether he said in his teachings that man(kind) was fictional? Are you a fact or a fiction? If you're trying to bless us with a discourse, you shouldn't star...
