Yes, I had to look that one up too!

We of the Esoteric Order of Dagon have taken note of this discussion and will be monitoring it closely.

Thanks Tilt.
I must brush up on my readings in literature!

And for a minute there I actually thought there was an Esoteric Order of Dagon and you were its grand pooh-bah!

Ah thanks Tilt. I actually found that image, downloaded it and it, mysteriously, disappeared!
You know what? I reckon my computer's been got to. It must have been one of those Roscrucians-for-Hire!

The thing about conspiracies is that most people do not bother or are not able to actually properly delve into the facts but make judgments based on emotional dispositions.

I try to keep an open mind, be agnostic about things I don't know about and research and ask questions about things I care about.

But of course there just isn't enough time to stay properly informed about everything important, so we have to prioritise.

I am not quite sure what your point is here, Kim. There is plenty going on which pertains to suffering and the end of suffering, both locally, nationally and globally. The connection may be less direct than the one taught by the Buddha but it is there and whether or not we want to be involved, in many ways we already are.
