Alan Watts talks about the art of meditation and why it is important to practice it, especially in the civilized world. Too much mental chatter can trap you in a world of illusion.

Watts : "Iím not saying that thinking is bad. Like everything else, itís useful in moderation. A good servant, but a bad master.

    All so called civilized peoples have increasingly become crazy and self-destructive, because through excessive thinking, they have lost touch with reality. Thatís to say we confuse signs, words, numbers, symbols and ideas with the real world.

    Most of us would rather have money than tangible wealth and a great occasion is somehow spoiled for us unless it is photographed. And, to read about it the next day in the newspaper is oddly more fun for us than the original event. This is a disaster"
NECROCAPITALISM at ĎRolling thunder. Shock. A noble one in fear and dread sets things in order and is watchful.í I-Ching (Hex.51)
