vertical line Reminds me of this:
when the buddha was walking one day with his disciples, he stopped and pointed at a line of ants on the ground, he said "you see these ants, they have been reborn as ants for as long of a time as it takes seven buddhas to return, why? you ask, because they are attached to their form".

Some people are not talking for their own benefit, but for the benefit of all beings. You will know it when you see it.
