He is blinking with his rigth eye, while the left one is steady and unmoving. Strange, any explanations for it?

He lost an eye to a mishap with a tire jack about 50 years ago.

Thanks, I thought he might be with his other brain-half in perpetual samadhi, (eyes are connected to the brains crosswise, left eye to the right brain and right eye to the left brain).
Now that Robert Thurman has an ocular protesthetic he has become a good canditate for being the Dajjal of islamic prophecies. Dajjal is similar to the anti-christ figure, but he has only one eye, and a peculiar stride. I had thought before that Dajjal is probably a buddhist. There are other things that would not fit with Robert Thurman, and dont take this all too seriously. Nevertheless the Kalachakra teachings do say islamists (and other theist teachers) are destroyers of the Dharma and the Three Jewels. And Bob Thurman has been teaching Kalachakra publicly. What can we do if our world is like this? Here is a little about how islamic faith sees the Dajjal http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dajjal
