Thanks Will.
If you believe certain words, you believe their hidden arguments. When you believe something is right or wrong, true of false, you believe the assumptions in the words which express the arguments. Such assumptions are often full of holes, but remain most precious to the convinced.

Your Gimello link is a great article :bow: Also the source - the Taiwan site - seems to have many English papers of interest.

Many thanks to the 84000 project! :bow: :bow: :bow:

Now, observing with the eye of the Buddha, both the Buddha and ordinary beings are in the same liberated state. There is neither this nor that: there is only non-duality and identity.
