Moves 34-41 are brutal.
Even I can see the doom at that point.
Byrne probably couldn’t bring himself to resign to a 13 year-old.

Re: Beauty and Brains in Chess

Like life it’s loaded with metaphors, isn’t it. The king is the weakest yet he shapes all the strategy. Unlike the king, the lowly pawn can become the strongest weapon. The court (cabinet) protects the king but sometimes a wild god, a creator of thought and motion, will sacrifice its entire court to...

Since this obviously isn’t going to continue until you the read the book, perhaps begin here instead of page 1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEcIO4sAvuE 45:38 “I am talking about the one principle that is untouched by anything in the universe. “It is prior to the appearance of the I am.” With the...

Re: The thoughts of Nisargadatta Maharaj

That’s an amazing response. Rare. However, it’s not my rule. It’s a rule of rationality. Ask around. That things may stray is not cause for things to stray. The end-point of the dualistic, intellectual self-enquiry method is to fit the absolute into a frame, and then at some point in the future (sag...

Re: The thoughts of Nisargadatta Maharaj

Don’t you want to know why he wrote that? Don’t you think it remarkable that an academic would write such a thing about an uneducated peasant? Okay, I read the forward..written by the philosopher...and yes, I do agree it is remarkable that an academic would write that about a pious peasant....perha...

No. What did he write....I’ve looked back and can’t find anything relating to what the academic wrote...can you post the link again ...then I’ll take a look at it...I don’t mind doing reading, I just wasn’t aware I had to read it in the first place.. Are you drunk? He wrote the foreword to the book...

Wild game with an irresistible queen sacrifice. Paul Morphy vs Duke Karl http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1233404 I remember years ago when I first learned of this game. I replayed it slowly and remained amazed how Morphy was capable of such a game. It seems to go against our natural in...

Re: The thoughts of DAM

The topic can either be the thoughts of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. Or, they can be your thoughts. When your thoughts are his, there you are. But to me, 'thoughts' are the narrative, the conceptual pointers, pointing us back to source. Thoughts are not what we truly are...that's all I'm saying.

Re: The thoughts of Nisargadatta Maharaj

Well, look around. Look at where you are. Writing is an intellectual activity. And yes, many people do think alike. This fact is the basis of standardized testing. It's why David Copperfield is a success. I wouldn't know if people think alike Walker. That's because you don't listen. I told you why,...
