Excellent! Let's up he becomes a reasonable person as his practice matures.
"He turns his mind away from those phenomena and, having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'

Greetings,

The "Dhammic Story" has now been told - thank you, Mr Man.

Since any subsequent discussion is highly unlikely to relate directly to this story, the topic is now closed.

Metta,
Paul. :)
