    How about answering the question though. What is the difference between Advaita and your belief in "cosmic consciousness"? They sound similar, though it's difficult to judge because you still haven't defined what you actually mean by "cosmic consciousness".

    "Cosmic Consciousness" is your deity. :p

    So your definition of "Cosmic Consciousness" is.....?

    And the difference between "Cosmic Consciousness" and Advaita is.....?

    So you prefer one pointing finger over another. Did you bother to look at the moon yet?

    You do realize, do you not, that the Buddha held no preferences.

    I don't know. You seem to have all the answers, you tell us. So what is the doctrine of this religion you call Cosmic Consciousness?

    It has already been defined by Grand Master Spiny Norman. I guess I don't believe in CC, since CC is not a belief. What does Advaita have to do with CC? Are you making things up again, Spiny? I told you about that! Now go to your room!

    Just a way of pointing out the foolishness of your sectarian rants against "Hinyana". :p

    So your definition of "Cosmic Consciousness" is.....?

    And the difference between "Cosmic Consciousness" and Advaita is.....?

    No, I am eagerly awaiting your definition of "Cosmic Consciousness" and your explanation of how it differs from Advaita. :p

    I will tell you the moment my Lord and Master, His Holiness, Rev. Spiny Normanicus, reveals it to me. Deal, or No Deal?

    So you keep going on about "Cosmic Consciousness" and you don't know what it is?! How strange is that?!

    You need to get some Sun. You look a little pasty, spending all your time in Plato's Cave, your brain locked onto those hypnotic dancing cave wall shadows. O ye of little faith!

    So you don't know what "Cosmic Consciousness" is? Why do you keep going on about something if you don't know what it is?
