WHICH ONE NEEDS?
CT is a deluded old man, he does not know which one - body or mind
or a concept created by them - that needs.

When he is hungry, he eats; when he is not, he doesn't.
When he is thirsty, he drinks water; when he is not, he doesn't.
When he is tired or sleepy, he relaxes or sleeps. when he is not, he doesn't.
When it is hot, he'll find some coolness.
When it is cold, he'll find some warmth.
If he find neither coolness nor warmth anywhere,
he'll live with that as long as he could.
When it is neither hot nor cold, he just lives with it.
