Time and Culture

Post by joy&peace » Sat Sep 15, 2018 12:55 am

So a lot of times, the time can be looked at culturally and or with ideas, and language.

There are different kinds of language, including transcendental, and such like this;

and whether we are advanced sometimes is shown by the words and thoughts we share.

What do you think the 24th century will be like, if things only get better in terms of inter-cultural understanding?

At this rate, humanity is not going to make it to the 24th century.

Sometimes I drive to work in my gas guzzling car and I reflect that people like me are the reasons why our planet is dying. "Innocent" people like me who need to get to work.
歸命本覺心法身常住妙法心蓮臺本來莊嚴三身徳三十七尊住心
城遠離因果法然具普門塵數諸三昧無邊徳海本圓滿還我頂禮心諸佛

In reverence for the root gnosis of the heart, the dharmakāya,
for the ever present good law of the heart, the lotus terrace,
for the inborn adornment of the trikāya, the thirty-seven sages dwelling in the heart,
for that which is removed from seed and fruit, the upright key to the universal gate,
for all boundless concentrations, the sea of virtue, the root perfection,
I prostrate, bowing to the hearts of all Buddhas.

No, but thank you Amanita. I do not read books by violent individuals. Killing toward animals is also considered killing; I do not consider is less.

Indeed. I am also too poor for a Tesla.

A problem perhaps unique to Canada is that here, it is common to live 2hr+ from your work, given the extreme sparsity of the population density here.

How is DR. Michio Kaku a violent person?
