Whaddya think?

Are wearable cams going to aid society or mess it up more? Encourage people to behave better? Or contribute to the blurring of lines between everyday reality and visual entertainment? We'll all see ourselves more clearly or we'll all move permanently "on stage"? All of the above?

Mind is Empty
Emptiness is Clear Light
Clear Light is Union
Union is Great Bliss

Looks pretty nightmarish to me. I'm sure I'll be using one by next spring. ;)
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

We are being assimilated into the Borg.
Resistence is futile.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Conquer the angry man by love. Conquer the ill-natured man by goodness. Conquer the miser with generosity. Conquer the liar with truth. -The Dhammapada

:spy: :computerproblem: Stop the world I want to get off... :toilet:
Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things
