Subject: The visible vs. "the real"
In reply to: ketch - 24 July 2002 's message, "The value of a currency note" on 22:03

According to Krishnananda, "[t]he visible is not the real; the invisible is the real."

Thus, for example, "[y]ou yourself are not the person sitting in front of me and talking to me."

Response: If what Krishnananda says is true, the adherent will then have no objection upon, say, receiving a swift kick in the pants.


1. One cannot object to what is not real.

2. The foot and the pants are "the visible" and thus not "the real."

3. Therefore, one cannot object to a foot lodged in one's groin.

Qualification: Now maybe if one were to use one's invisible foot to kick another's invisible groin...

Note: A sharp response might be that the above argument is the visible and therefore not the real. However, to thwart this objection, I have reproduced the argument in invisible ink, below:
