    "Reality has no opposite. Reality IS. NIRVANA IS." (emphasis appears in original)
    This author—Walpola Rahula—explains plainly the teachings of the Buddha. A sort of spirituality without God (or Gods), Buddhism does not teach the finite or the infinite, nor beginnings, nor endings. Buddhism offers no balm or shield from the "thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to". Buddhism simply teaches that suffering can be eradicated in the individual.

    "Suffering" here is used in broad terms. From bittersweet nostalgia, to the pang of realizing that one's child must grow up and be a child no more, to the agony of the death of a spouse, the entire spectrum of suffering is considered.

    This lucid book is one of my suggestions for prose that can redefine reality. No one under the influence of suffering can possibly have a clear view of reality. If you agree with the previous statement, then please investigate what the Buddha taught.

    Space Collective is a rousing party, and I hate to steal the punch bowl, but after the death of a schoolteacher in the Challenger disaster, I can not see NASA ever putting civilians in space again. At the time I thought that Justice might investigate NASA for criminal negligence. By good luck or good connections, NASA dodged that bullet, but the agency will probably not take that risk twice.

    Ah, well...I suppose that there is always the "X orbiter".

    Your thoughts?
