More from the same guy.
But he REALLY needs to beef up a bit on Buddhist thought, before he writes further on the matter. (told him..)
Some of the lines hurt: “When considering a Buddhist contemplating his soul” “Buddhism posits an immaterial thing that survives the brain’s death and is reincarnated.”…. no comment…
He seems to have snatched up a few Buddhist key-words and now thinks he can talk about it in a condescending way.
Of course the realization of a non-permanent mind (no-self) does not spring up in the way this author claims. That the mind is not unified and that there is no permanent self to hang on to are inescapable insights that spring from a deep meditation-based inquiry. Which is what I would wish the author would get himself into before he writes more of the same.
Still, interesting enough, in a wrong kind of way.
