You are mistaken in more ways than one. I guess that does not
surprise you now that you are lucid about such possibilities.
It would seem you are ripe for some Buddhist intervention since you
see life as suffering. This can be abolished through Buddhist ritual
if you need it. Personally I do not. Do you consider the newness of
a budding plant to be painful and old? What we consider sq is
glorious! Why denigrate the state we live in so much? Life starts
with death, it is not painful, but rejuvenating. The Mayan calendar
does not end with pain and destruction, or even human death for that
matter. It is a time to rejuvenate. A time to reconsider our Values.
It is like the first of January every year. But perhaps you are
caught up in the misery cycle. Again, Buddhism will help you with
Polluting the world with static ideas? Is not this concept a static
idea on its own? Who is doing the pollution, David. Marsha has
opinions, but you do not have to breath the second hand smoke. How
about looking for the diamond in the rough there? Character
assassination, now that is pollution indeed. How about if you put an
entry into Wiki concerning Marsha. It is freely open to opinions, and
one can find references for any point of view (Wiki begets more Wiki),
you know, and those vast intellects that provide us with Knowledge to
live our lives by do it all the time.
If you are after purity, go take a swim in the ocean. You are
bringing in "original sin" here. The formation of static quality IS
original sin, the way you present it. The bible may help you with
this. It is full of how sinful we are. Give it a read, it is right
up your alley. You will find comfort in like minds.
I don't get it, you can leave DQ "like that", but not sq? What kind
of crusade are you on? Why do you keep forming thoughts and cavorting
with the devil? You can be free of sq and leave the "suffering" to
us. How about that David! You are like a director that makes movies
about porn movies to show how bad they are. Your presentation only
amplifies sq, something you see as evil. Why don't you just leave
your virginity intact?
As you say, sq can never "capture" DQ; words can never capture
awareness, so why try. You are grabbing DQ by the throat and trying to
promote it. What nonsense. You obviously have not thought this
through. Perhaps sq represents DQ, but this would be a definition for
DQ, as "that which is represented by sq". Actions represent
awareness. Your problems with Marsha reflect your awareness of the
world. This is not where the embracing of MoQ is supposed to lead
(IMO). But then again, we are all learning here. That is of course
those of us who do not profess to have the answer.
Then again, your post may have just been an attempt to be sarcastic.
If so, I commend you on your insight.
