http://www.centuryone.com/25dssfacts.htmlFact No. 22Unless new shit has come to light of which I am unaware...and that is highly likely!
The wise programmer is told about Tao and follows it.The average programmer is told about Tao and searches for it.The foolish programmer is told about Tao and laughs at it.If it were not for laughter, there would be no Tao.
Nobody fucks with the Jesus! You think it's a coinkidinki that the Jesus is a pederast? Nah, man! That there's a metaphor or sumpthin. Anyway, all this arguing is totally undude and exhausting. The Dude would not bother with any of this, IMDO. I feel it is only because the conversation is between a group of Dudes that it is as cordial as it is. Any other forum would have people banned and a lot of feelings poo pooed by now.

With a bit of passion but without any intention to be assholes. That's the beauty of dudeism, having different opinions, debating yet being still able to share a virtual beer. I don't think cckeiser is a paraquat and probably he feels the same. Am I right dude?
Oops...I guess I should mention that what that all means is...we are all insane!
...M5, probably I don't understand the concept very well, but if there isn't a mirror I exist anyway. Sort of Cogito Ergo Sum, not coito, cogito.
The disciple asks: What then is it [i.e., no-thought]?The master replies: It is nothing like ?what is.? Therefore, we can not explain ?no-thought.? The reason why I am speaking about it now is because you have asked about it. If you haven?t asked about it, there is no need to explain it. Suppose that there is a clear, transparent mirror. If it does not face a thing, no image is reflected in it. To say that it mirrors an image means that because it faces something, it just mirrors its image.The disciple asks: If it does not face any thing, is there or is there not a reflection in the mirror?The master replies: That the mirror reflects a thing means that it always mirrors regardless of whether it is facing or not facing a thing.The disciple asks: If there is no image and since you do not give an explanation, how can all beings and nonbeings become an issue? Now when you say that it always mirrors, how does it mirror?The master replies: When I say that the mirror always mirrors, it is because a clear, transparent mirror possesses an original nature as its essential activity of always mirroring things. Analogously, people's mind is originally undefiled, and naturally possesses a superb light of wisdom that illuminates the perfect world of nirvāna. The disciple asks: Insofar as people's minds are originally like that, when do people get it?The master replies: It just sees nothing.The disciple asks: When it is nothing, what can it see?The master replies: Seeing is not like something you can call a thing.The disciple asks: If it is not like anything one can call a thing, what does it see?The master replies: it sees no-thing. That is the true seeing. It always sees.

I've known that most of my life (you're all insane it was never me).Actually can I add the work of Michel Foucault (I recommended Madness and Civilization - A History of Insanity in the Age of Reason), Descartes (I think therefore I am), the Tao Of Physics (check out the PDF Library & Learning Center, Compiling Data For Life On The Self Determined Path), and of course the vast majority of Buddhist and Taoist literature.There is no mirror, there is no I.
