And if you can't explain it, which is often the case with mysticism, then explain why you can't explain it. This "I am now. You are what. Why is where." stuff is just aggravating. Everyone pretends to know what everyone else is talking about but no one really knows because no one is actually saying anything substantive. It's such a yawn-fest. This is not Zen, even though it tries to be.

    So. What are we talking about again? Time? Reality? Ego? Experience? Can we try having a sensible discussion?

    I'm gonna have to agree with TWHS. If you're trying to be philosophical the least you can do is use complete sentences.

    Get out of the future, and the mind of others. Inhabit your own space, and be present.
