    IT TAKES A REAL IDIOT
    to laugh at the Wise man
    who has to be Unconsciousness
    to Realize Consciousness.

    Fools also talk.

    And the wise men, wishing to appear wise, continue to listen to the fool and do not correct.
    And eventually the wise men begin to believe the fool.

    :D

    Wise men learn more from fools than fools from the wise.

    What then is the essence of Wisdom?

    I simply did not get this.

    Why does the wise man have to be unconscious to realize consciousness?
    What do you mean by unconsciousness?
    And what does realizing consciousness mean?
    And how did you find a fool so smart he realized - by looking? - that the wise man 'realized consciousness' by being unconscious? And not only that that the Wise man 'had to' do it that way?


    (happy to get help from the other posters since genep seems to drop pithily and then retreat into the clouds)
