THE D.O.M. WOULD NOT...
Meister Eckhart, a German Christian mystic of the late 13th & early 14th century, once said: "The eye with which I see God is the same eye God sees me." And then he was accused as a "heretic" by the authorities of orthodox systems.

And Ashtavakra, an Indian Vedantic mystic of the 8th century, once said: " I am God himself." However, he was not accused as an heretic by Hinduistic systems but, contrarily, praised as one of their saints and masters.

The first one, in the d.o.m.'s view, bound himself to God and then God bound him tightly, meanwhile, the second one took a very Big Thing into himself then he became too bulky and heavy to stand up and walk fast and lightly at all.

The d.o.m. himself would not say anything like both of them did, because he is not any thing and then he could walk alone in the whole universe without accusation or praise.

The d.o.m. 11/29/01
