No. The cats in our neighborhood are gone. :thinking: I didn't recognize this before.

Do your cat(s) have a canopy bed? (Or do you have any cat at all?)

Yes, because everything is sunyata. :tongue: :thinking: And No, because if they would be the same there would be no need for two different names. So everything is the same and it is diversified at the same time.

Do you understand the meaning of "veritable"?

Do you know the difference between knowing and realizing?

Location: Trāyastriṃśa. Just kidding. What a cool sanksrit word, huh?
If I had to say a yes or no..

no, only because Nagarjuna said the wise don't even dwell in the middle! So...by extension...even impermanence isn't necessarily impermanent?

Have you ever slept in the snow?

I replied. "Wanting to be reborn is like wanting to stay in a jail cell, when you have the chance to go free and experience the whole wide world. Does a convict, on being freed from his shabby, constricting, little cell, suddenly say "I really want to go back to jail and be put in a cell. It sounds pretty cool. Being able to come back. Who wouldn't want that?"
