Perhaps the Klingons got them, or 'the zombies'

Ha!... I bet it's for sure that tiger... chomped on the heads... chewed 'em up, swallowed 'em right down... greedy, greedy, fellow. [BURP!] Shocked

Wha?... wanted it back? Well no siree, no thanks... it was more trouble than it was worth, so it's just as well to be without it since it weren't doing no body no good no ways. Besides, without it there's now an unobstructed view to the "no-end insight." Kinda funny though how sight is clearer when the eyes (and I's) are gone.

Whilesover there is any meaning read into what appears as these postings, it is all concepts battling concepts... one idea opposing another... useless.

That to which the concepts: "seeing/colours, hearing/sounds, feeling/feelings, smelling/odours, tasting/flavours and knowing/meaning (collectively called 'consciousness)" points, is the 'reality'... 'self evident'... evident to 'self' (consciousness) ... plain simple clear no argument, no one to argue with.

'Consciousness' has no need of concepts to point to that which is 'consciousness'.

It's play... another idea


Let's hug! Very Happy

Most of this post is clear and lovely - I'm stroking your hair now - do you have any? Yes, I'm a little bit creepy Shocked

Quote:

Forget about David's hand. Look at your own... what do you see? Describe it. Not just the shape but ‘what’ it is. What is a ‘hand’? Impossible to describe in words, yet it is known!


Image, shape, colour etc. sensation, concept of 'hand' (subtle sound seemingly creating apparent meaning) There is no 'hand' apart from this.
There is no hand. (funny word that Smile )

Quote:

Turn your hand and look at it. What do you see? Does it appear different to the shape you saw before? Is the 'meaning' 'hand' (not the word, but that which is known) the same... even though the shape appears to be different?


Sometimes there is no meaning 'hand' - just image. Meaning comes and goes. It is not constant. When it comes up it is believed to somehow have existed when it didn't! This is the illusion of a continuous, meaningful reality or meaning called 'hand'. There is no such hand. There is no such continuous meaning.


Quote:

Close your eyes, what/where is the hand that is no longer seen?


There is no hand. Now there is no image. There is sensation - and concept 'hand' - or not.

Quote:

Looking at exactly the same appearance, see it from the perspective of a fly.

Laughing Laughing Laughing That's a good trick, how d'you do that?!! Laughing Laughing

Quote:

What ‘thing’ does the ‘hand’ now seem to be? Yes, this is just a conceptual game. But it points to that which is beyond concept, to that which knows all concepts/meaning.


It doesn't really, I'm afraid. That which is beyond concepts isn't well pointed to by conceptual games. Or by emphasizing the seeming continuity of concepts like 'hand'
There are no such anchors. There only seem to be.
Makes life seem less scary for the seemingly continuous meaning called 'me'.

I'm sure we're on the same side, really. Very Happy

Actually, after it had gone all quiet, I cautiously peaked in and spied the tiger's lopped-off head rolling on the floor.... Wink

Reminds me of an old blind native-Canadian woman I used to 'know'---a first-rate hunter, who would often be the only one in her extended family to bring home the venison!

love,
sara

hey sara, I reckon you're cheating. Evil or Very Mad ... but you picked "The Zombie Jamboree" in ONE. Very Happy

I reckon you looked these words up on the world wide web... better watch out for the world wide spider though, or you maya get tangled in a web of deceit. Wink

And what the heck is ROTFLOL? Confused

Love

The thought that thinks it thinks... is thought... it thinks.

Who thinks this? What is thought... "buggered if I know"... thinks thought.

The 'I' that doesn't know, doesn't exist. Very Happy

Laughs nervously...

Lays burden softly down...

Looking, looking... nope, no burden here Very Happy

Love
