My old friend, an Australian philosopher, child of holocaust survivors who had gone to Esarn in Ne Thailand to study Buddha Dhamma under Luang Por Kom Kian (Venerable father Golden Writing) told me there are two kinds of people
Those who think something exists (or hope there does)
those who think nothing exists (or hope so)
And the chief discovery of the Buddha is they’re both wrong
I used to think he was absolutely right but now I think no; it just seems that way because “exist” is vague. Maybe in a language in which there were more words for “exist” it would seem to us that there are more kinds of people.
But whether either of us is right
Or we are both right
Or both wrong
I wish him well!
