Sorry? - Are you mad? - Thank you for such a wonderful and lovely post.
I think now we are both sure to agree that we disagree. Having put so much effort to arrive at this conclusion, I think we both have earned our time off. Anyway, lately we both seem to be the only ones involved in any real discussion here.
It appears that you have become very quiet. Yes I think we should agree to disagree, for now at least. But this doesn’t mean that we can’t continue discussing, does it?
I should have mentioned that in spite of our present disagreement, I feel that you do make good contributions to discussions here. Knowing myself to be a worldling often revolving around certain habitual ways of thinking about things, including Dhamma, I feel that I can learn from other perspectives including your own. Besides I continue to discover in me, inclinations not only to wrong view, but also those bordering upon superstition! So indeed I am in need of being instructed from as many good minds as I can meet.
So please Wolfgang, do continue to contribute to this list, perhaps not in this particular thread, but others. I look forward to hearing from you and I feel confident that we can all learn from each other.
