    Demi gets the seven points... seriously surprised anyone remembered that, I think it was actually only mentioned once in one of the first episodes, he was teachin' a class... from what I remember it would be most suited for kicking the shins of a midget standing at your side... yea I watched that shit back when it was cool, before that faggot tommy came around

    i don't dislike it as an outsider looking in. the philosophy can provoke good inner reflection. i just don't really ascribe to the solutions it often provides.

    one of the main things that turned me away from ever taking it on as a personal belief system is the approach towards the 'sensual world,' i.e. towards reality itself. my understanding was that turning away from this world was a central part of gaining enlightenment.

    here's an example of what i mean:

    THE PATH OF NON-ATTACHMENT


    this doesn't appeal to me at all. knowledge of death doesn't make me love life less. impermanence doesn't bother me. permanence would be nice, but i've come to see it as quite an unreasonable demand to make.

    the whole approach sort of conflicts with my naturalistic way of thinking, too. i believe strongly that instinct is something very valuable to human beings, and thus a call for me to detach myself from my instincts (or desires) doesn't appeal to me. in fact it turns me away in the very same way that human nature being labelled as sinful turns me away from the abrahamic faiths.

    just my 2 cents.

    it makes more sense to you to keep coming back in different forms?

    you're a good man, next life you will be an eagle.

    will you be a good eagle? from there, where?

    reincarnation exists, but next life is eternal.

    it can't be limitless reincarnations.

    if i were god, you would be (but i'm not, incase you're thinking).

    and busta, don't take me the wrong way brother - i adore buddhism/buddhists.

    they are very very similar to the sufi mystic sect that islam has, meditation >

    it limitless as long as everything exists... and ive explained the animal thing many times and you still have it wrong

    and you most likely come back as another human.

    and yes, coming back makes more sense to me than living once just to die, then going to heaven to hang out for eternity... doesnt make sense to me.
