daily dharma (‘some of the dharma’ pages 17-21)

Irony to come, but of course he doesn’t know that(or does he?), when J.K. speaks of living to age 78 in 2000 A.D. Can random numbers, on J.K.’s Travelers Cheques for instance, have karmic significance? Is there a joke here? Someone cash his check too early or was he just overdrawn?

The world – empty, everything in the world – empty, people in the world – stupid, J.K.’s message – “all sentient life is tortured” and “emptiness is all that matter” (seems to have reached some sort of low point here)

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
