"There are 10 times more bacterial cells than human cells in the human body. That means we are basically a means for bacteria to become mobile, to complete their life cycles and to procreate. We think they are living off us, but it is we who are living for them." - D Byrne

What is potentially provable, is not proven. The implications of what I know to be true are not in themselves true.

Though the tendered advice to "stop worrying" is a reasonable offer, I shudder to think that it doesn't matter what I do, it doesn't matter what I think, what I believe, what I crave or crush or kill or desire.

I can refrain from worry and still behave well. It is natural to learn compassion.

I guess I should really be posting this reply over at RSS, but for the time being reply here.

There is an inherent contradiction in even using a term such as 'perfection'. And this contradiction or illusion of 'perfection' is as much a creation of our OWN mind, as it is of any external guru or agency. For me, herein lies the inherently absurd nature of asking for gurus to resign and such like.

We live in duality, and duality is inherently imperfect. We may at one time consider an ideal perfect, and upon actualisation of that ideal find it was actually far from being so. Also, what is perfect for one, may be imperfect for another.

The issue, for me, becomes one of how AWARE we are that in duality perfection cannot exist....and this may only happen on a transformational level when the 'mystical realisation' of 'non-duality' is attained.

You cannot blame RS for creating fantastical images of perfection, when the whole of society is, in one way or another, promoting similar ideals....as most are unaware of the inherent imperfection of duality, concepts, morals, ideals etc etc

If the guru is a liar, then so is our governments, family, school teachers, scientists etc etc.

Edward, I can't help but wonder if there are microscopic elves dwelling in the bacteriological universe that's living on the bodies of your house-elves... and if they mutter too.

David Byre is just insanely smart.


Like the tremendous sexual repression of islam produces "poppers", thinking they'll get what they need/want (sex) in heaven.

The link between Mind and Social / Environmental-Issues.

The fast-paced, consumerist lifestyle of Industrial Society is causing exponential rise in psychological problems besides destroying the environment. All issues are interlinked. Our Minds cannot be peaceful when attention-spans are down to nanoseconds, microseconds and milliseconds. Our Minds cannot be peaceful if we destroy Nature.

Industrial Society Destroys Mind and Environment.

Subject : In a fast society slow emotions become extinct.
Subject : A thinking mind cannot feel.
Subject : Scientific/ Industrial/ Financial thinking destroys the planet.

Emotion is what we experience during gaps in our thinking.

If there are no gaps there is no emotion.

Today people are thinking all the time and are mistaking thought (words/ language) for emotion.

When society switches-over from physical work (agriculture) to mental work (scientific/ industrial/ financial/ fast visuals/ fast words ) the speed of thinking keeps on accelerating and the gaps between thinking go on decreasing.

There comes a time when there are almost no gaps.

People become incapable of experiencing/ tolerating gaps.

Emotion ends.

Man becomes machine.

A society that speeds up mentally experiences every mental slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.

A ( travelling )society that speeds up physically experiences every physical slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.

A society that entertains itself daily experiences every non-entertaining moment as Depression / Anxiety.
