So - let's see how that plays out in the DC.
So if someone were to put the unrestricted collected works of ChNNR on the web, allowing one copy for personal use only, and for educational purposes only, hmnnnnnnnn?
If someone were to put the restricted collected works of ChNNR on a "Members of the DC" only website, or equivalent sign in, vetted, section of DW, with the same caveats, hmnnnnnnnn?
Maybe SSI can be funded from other sources than high priced sales of the ChNNR material, or maybe SSI can offer a full bells and whistles, high production value version, and the free on the web version would be low production value, for practitioners only.
I wonder if having the collected works - free on the web, with membership caveats as appropriate, would help the community grow and help practitioners (of all economic status) realize the benefits of the Teachings?
I wonder if this would help the reputation of the DC, as regards equal access to the Teachings for all economic classes? Perhaps it would attract more new people as it would be seen as an example of open-hearted kindness AND NORMAL PEOPLE ARE ATTRACTED TO THAT.
So would this mean that if all /ALL of ChNNr's transcripts were in one data base, then it would be possible to have a search engine that would list the key word / phrase, down the center of the page, with a sentence before and a sentence after, with hyper-link, one click, jump to the original citation in full context?
Any computer geniuses out there? Any idea how much this would cost and how it could be implemented? Maybe crowd sourcing, and crowd funding, could get it done in a year.
Hmnnnnnnnn? The mind boggles. Perhaps a fully boggled mind is a sign of a good Dzogchen practitioner. Having exhausted all /ALL possibilities of intellectual understanding, perhaps (fully boggled) I can then relax in the vast luminous clarity of the natural mind.
