Re: Does White Light Exist?

Yes no hope for me. I support those seeking white light even though opposed by the majority of secondary and third rate representatives of diverse colors spouting their education and freedom to create their own reality: their own color.

Re: Henry Quirk must be shut down

Harbal! You're back. Where did you go, lad? I've been wandering aimlessly in the wilderness, IC. I was looking for the light at the end of the tunnel until I realised I was in the wrong metaphor. The next thing I knew, here I was. Are you still keeping all the heathens on their toes? :wink:

There is no concept for emptiness,

Awareness is just another concept for emptiness.
