    As surely not so known, the Buddha left a comprehensive collection of all views people might held, often base for religions, behind and this is recorded in the The Brahmā Net.

    My person thought to leave it here for investigation who ever might be interested and maybe one or another likes to reflect own or others views within this net.

    Much joy, inspiration and even high gains of insight, clearancy and release.

    Buddha is my Guru, but he never learnt the art of saying things in a precise manner. Or perhaps who wrote his conversations made it like that. :D

    (Good householder, it's not so good to speak in such manner about even ones own Guru. The are some useful tipps if not so used to read actually very clear, better releasing, texts: Befriending the suttas)

    It's a very long teaching, of course. Not something that can be taken in between and of cause needs certain interest. If certain simile in addition might be of use, or something not clear, one might not hesitate to let it be known.

    Eh, Buddha is my guru, and sure, I can have some fun with him. I have been with him perhaps for 20 years. He does not mind. Little things.

    (There is no worry about the Buddha nor other Gurus, but just as a hint for the actor and results of such for him, good householder.)

    I do not believe in 'partial eternalism'. I believe in 'full eternalism'. Though my eternalism dismisses the distinction between existence and non-existence. RigVeda said:
    "sato bandhumasati niravindan hṛidi pratīṣyākavayo manīṣā ll"
    (Sages who searched with their heart's thought discovered the existent's kinship in the non-existent).
    Rig Veda: Rig-Veda, Book 10: HYMN CXXIX. Creation.
