Why did Dan never think of you as the new zenspace owner? :D
:lol:

He probably did & then realised zenspace had given him a complete breakdown :lol:

I never saw anyone who didn't have a "heart of gold", even the most demonic deluded minds do.
Off topic, but Neil Young sings a good song about it, included on his "Harvest" LP record album released February 1, 1972. ;) Cheers, --Joe
Back on/off topic ;) That was my all time favorite Neil Young song. A classic.

Wow!, now I see how this "Off Topic" thread works. Thanks for the example.

Slow on the uptake, most times. But then, ...mind like a steel sieve, err-r, I mean, steel trap! ;)

BTW, I dug/dig his "Old Man", too, during a time when I had Old-Man issues: "Dad", don't you know... . Jus' temporary, ...as are all things.

Nothing, but it doesn't exclude spooning right? :lol:

Why, no.

BTW, I stir my coffee counter-clockwise with the teaspoon.

Great so I can remain "joking" with friends and family (and summer girls) that spooning is the embodiment of zen, ace! :lol:

Well, sir, I admit I "don't-know-from-'gay' ".

But "gray" (white?), I know more than a bit about: just look at my "Avatar" (I should fire him... ).

As I like to say (you know... ): "DON'T let the gray hair fool you, it's NOT my natural hair color."

Are you sure this smidgeon is "off-topic"? Hmm, maybe that's good. Pheww-w! Just for that, I may have a beer with dinner.

Quantum rules indicate (which means nothing lol) there is no such thing (or not) as on or off topic, which brings us to Wittgenstein and stirring in whatever direction is stirred.
https://books.google.nl/books?id=EAnvsY ... us&f=false
(reminds me of that video thread where I asked Jundo behind the function of all 300 monks or so having 'rules' as how to wash their bowls, he never responded (good for him!) but I was generally interested eventhough I understand the function behind it (I think)

I don't spoon with friends that often these days since I don't invite them "in" when alcohol is in play, so they don't end up sleeping here anymore, thus no spooning, they're hardly up for it when sober, so weird, I'm equally a fan of spooning or "meditating" together, drunk or sober.

Better to read Wittgenstein himself (and understand him... ). ;)

His Tractatus is extremely elegant (and therefore extremely perverse).

Good reading, though.

Larry, I accept the nomination for President.

Looking forward in 10 hours to Breakfast, although my kitchen is so small that I can only fry one egg at a time:

Discipline... , toleration... , acceptance... , ...laziness: I could otherwise knock out a wall or two, and add on.

(can't reach my copy of Wittgenstein at the moment, or I could maybe add something pithy)

Ignorance is to be ignorant of one's original mind. - Ma Tsu

Liberation is awakening to one's original nature. - Ma Tsu

Bodhi-Mind is working for the good of others. -Hakuin
