Nothing I say is the Truth.

Advaita is like a well constructed box

(meaning it's internally consistent),

but it's not connected to anything.

---Wayne Liquorman


  1. I like Wayne Liquorman...but to me advaita is box-less.

  2. He meant the pointers. You seem to mean "what" is pointed at. Yes?

    And in a sense, the two aren't connected. The pointers can only point beyond themselves to "What IS", untouchable by any concept.

  3. Gotcha- thanks for the clarification Tom. I saw an interesting video of Wayne the other day and liked what he said about the FSA- false sense of authorship.

  4. Your welcome, Colleen!

    BTW, I'd be interested to hear what it is that you liked/thought @ Wayne describing the FSA.

  5. To me the FSA is basically the ego. I find it helpful to hear about the ego when it is described as the FSA.

  6. It occurs to me that the Huang Po quote you just posted makes a nice counterpoint to the FSA.
