This really sucks. I'm posting these ONCE and they're showing up twice.

It kinda bugs me when our teacher brings what he teaches the kiddies into Level 1 classes. I can't challenge it, but it grates. So a child asks him "What is enlightenment" and he says "The 'A-ha!' experience. You know: When you've been working on a math problem and suddenly you see the solution? A-ha!" I'll eventually ask him about it, but I just think this is a weird answer to what is an entirely serious question. Does he really want the kids to share that information with each other? "Enlightenment is A-ha!"?

How do you verify a mind is not saying, "there is no such thing as mind"?

It has never been verified by anyone because there is no such thing as the mind.
