  "But," asked Vaccha persistently, "when one who has this emancipation of mind
(freed from self) dies, where does he go, where is he reborn?
The Buddha replied:
"The word 'reborn' does not fit the case."
"Then he is not reborn?"
"To... continue...

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: RAVERS SAVING THE UNIVERSE FROM THOSE WHO EQUATE IT ALL TO A SYMBOL, O
vertical line Posted on Aug.07.2012 @ 11:36PM EDT by genericzen


ravers saving the universe from those who equate it all to a symbol,
or some kind of programming... if they see it like that, then maybe
they are in a program, but the real world is not a program, when
you're in a program you dont really have a concept of reality, because
programs will try to insist only their reality is true, programs are
hallucinations, metaprograms are when you realize maybe everything is
a program, but if everything is a program, nothing is a program, sense
the equalness of our relative all being of programs would make us not
programs, but actually its never all a program, the truth is just when
you're in a program it seems like everything is a program, but when
you leave the program, programs are totally gone, you see so much more
clearly, programs may be there, but they dont effect you anymore, they
can't sway us or pull us in against our will. its kind of like gaining
immunity, so i guess having a trip about so many programs is not so
bad. because it liberates so much, which otherwise might hold you back
for a long time. or something like that

 if you try to say the world is a program, you'll be put in a program,
but i think this is probably dangerous and a mistake, but if you say
the world is a dream, then you get put in a dream, but we don't really
program our dreams, they kind of just happen, and maybe for a while,
you think you are controlling things but its actually just a dream,
like all this thats happening right now, i think i'm doing it, but i
might be just dream doing it, we never really have control, just
illusions of it, but theres never really a self or other either...
theres no such thing as control or lack or control, thats the main
thing that gets people messed up, thinking in terms of that, but as
you realize thats not something that really exists at all, this is
wantism, and you attain nirvana

 as does all consciousness everywhere

this is the kabbalah and animal rights
