Thank you, Jack Preston King , for introducing atman in a way that people might understand. I’m fine with returning, on this planet at least, to the nitrogen cycle but others want something more. We all will get much more but our kluged together self is certainly not part of that.

That is why I’m so opposed to religion. The deified self is a road to fear, pain, and suffering. Besides being a carrier of ignorance. This isn’t complicated but it is totally counterintuitive to Homo sapiens.

It appears you may be helping some people to begin thinking beyond a giant mall in the sky.
