Re: YES man philosophy

i am studying nietzsche at berkeley and enjoying it a lot. he's misinterpreted (by nazis, by 13 year olds, etc). you have to study schopenhauer to get nietzsche. and you have to know kant to get schopenhauer.

Re: Post your original poetry here!

love
it comes
i suffocate it
and let it breathe
and suffocate my heart
it aches and slows me down
i am grateful for being slowed down
to see the delusions and catch the heart movements

Re: Buddhist text's true author identified as Thai woman

there is an article from sati buddhist studies i liked about this issue. it uses various methodologies to trace the authenticity of the suttas.
it concludes that the buddha taught sila, samma samadhi and panna (and the rest is commentary anyway).
