Your choice Rybak,
Suttas or Sunrise.
Therein what are 'six (types of) disrespect'? One dwells without respect, without deference for the Teacher; one dwells without respect, without deference for the Teaching; one dwells without respect, without deference for the Order; one dwells without respect, without deference for the precepts; one dwells without respect, without deference for heedfulness; one dwells without respect, without deference for hospitality. These are six (types of) disrespect.

Would you mind pointing me to a sutta which mentions "stream of consciousness" please?

Is that not allowed here ? It almost appears as If you wish to to suppress me, a mere helpless woman, in the manner of the Spanish Inquisition, Lazy-Eye !
Not my intention at all. Sorry if I came across that way -- thought we were just having some back-and-forth dialogue.

I seem to be picking fights right and left this week.

I am locking this thread for right now in order to further review this thread, which seems to be taken way off course.

Simply, this is not a debate section, but this thread is starting to move in that direction. Maybe expressing one's opinions with a little less stridency and allowing that other opinions have their place within the context of the OP might be the way to go.

If one wants debate, then please take it to The Dhammic free-for-all section, home of The Great Rebirth Debate.
