I just did an advanced search for "ZFI" and my username, Dan. Looks like about a half dozen posts worth of the issue. Oddly, you were in those discussions with me. So it would seem that yet again the kettle is calling the pot black. At least you're consistent.
But in any case, you have yet to show how I've lost my perspective. I share your apparent perspective that it's better to spend ones energy productively than to squander it. But I'm not perfect. I waste a lot of time and energy on frivolous things. I don't have any good explanation for that.
I imagine that you don't waste any energy on mundane things and work 24/7 on saving all sentient beings. You're a true Bodhisattva, good Sir. I bow to you.
