Mostly A108's, but it is his choice.
I feel that this thread has come to the end of its natural life.
From my perspective it has served its purpose more than I had hoped. I feel that the concerns that I raised at the beginning of this topic have all been addressed.
"Building the ultimate personal philosophy" may be a noble activity in some sense, but it can also just be a manifestation of ego to think that one's insight is so much greater than the Buddha's and that we can succeed and "fill in the missing pieces" where he could not. Such public "philosophy-building" is often just the celebration of one's illusory self. But this is also just a stage of life that a lot of intellectual people go through as young adults: "Oh, hey! I figured everything out and created my own synthesis of existing philosophies! I'm just so bright and clever!" lol
