I almkost never comment, but i did a few searching and wound up here The Zennist: Buddhism's scientific method. And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it be just me or does it appear like some of these responses appear as if they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at other sites, I'd like to follow everything new yyou have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of your community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or likedin profile?

When Sakka, king of the gods, spontaneously appeared from beyond and asked The Buddha to describe, in brief, how one is to become enlightened, this was his response :

“Here, ruler of the gods, one has heard that nothing is worth adhering to. When one has heard that nothing is worth adhering to, one directly knows everything; having directly known everything, one fully understands everything; having fully understood everything, whatever feeling one feels, whether pleasant or painful or neither-painful-nor-pleasant, one abides contemplating impermanence in those feelings, contemplating detachment, contemplating cessation, contemplating relinquishment. Contemplating thus one does not cling to anything in the world. When one does not cling, one is not agitated. When one is not agitated, one personally attains Nibbana [enlightenment].

“Briefly, it is in this way, ruler of the gods, that one is liberated in the destruction of craving, one who has reached the ultimate end, the ultimate security from bondage, the ultimate holy life, the ultimate goal, one who is foremost among gods and humans.


(Majjhima Nikāya : 37 : Culatanhasankhaya Sutta // The Shorter Discourse on the Destruction of Craving, Pali Canon)

actually the scientific methodology of all mysticism is called Abduction

nice try though
