A person who has experienced the fullest state of awareness would not diss on this state. A person who has not would and did. I have experienced it once. Yes, you can experience enlightenment and then regress. This is common when on drugs. A person who has not experienced this state has no right to talk about how boring and stupid it is. understood?

I sure am glad I can count on your superior authoriTAH whenever the topic of enlightenment surfaces. I mean we'd all be in a real bind... if it weren't for your wisdom we might worshipping giant bronze sculptures of pigeon corpses because the bum we thought was enlightened was just a schizophrenic necrophiliac with a thing for the "flying rats". But really... that would be more interesting than most "enlightened" people (here, at least) would come up with. Alas, there are no books on dead pigeon worship or any dead bird worship for that matter. That's probably only because books on aliens currently sell better than would an "enlightening" book on dead fowl worship. However, you can bet that as soon as (if ever) that book comes out, I'll be the first in line at the book store.

It is also common to have impaired judgement when on drugs.

No, this is not understood. Rights do not derive from an individual's experience. Does your supposed "enlightenment" make you the final arbiter of who has rights? This doesn't read like a very enlightened reaction to me.

WHat I meant was:
THis person can talk all they want, oh yes, they have every constitutional and godgiven right, to talk about how it would feel to experience this thing that they have never experienced, and everyone else has the god-given right to listen to him, but why the hell would you want to do that? Becuase that person's opinoion doesn't count for shit. understand now?

sorry I didn't know we were going to get all technical.
I think it's pretty obvious what I meant, so please don't make me waste my time like this again. thank you.

"This doesn't read like a very enlightened reaction to me."

sorry, but i wasn't trying to give you an enlightened reaction. I never claimed to be enlightened at the moment.

So, if you are not, and have never been enlightened, how can you say that being enlightened is NOt boring?

To me, enlightenment is simply a partial return to the innocence that is lost throughout life. It is the crossing of a psychological barrier. A person once said "be careful what you put into your head, because you will never get it out". I see enlightenment as a high-level restructuring of the psyche that is capable of extracting the unwanted "garbage" in the mind that has been aquired through the years.
