In other words, suspend judgement and remain a skeptic of reality until I can see the overall picture.

I've been thinking about this concept in Buddhism recently, the idea of the point of contact between awareness of arising and attachment/clinging to the arising. That is, sparsha is the point of contact between what we sense inside and outside of mind-body, and the feelings and cravings that arise coming from that point. If I control the point of contact, I can choose, consciously, my feelings, thoughts, actions and reactions.

I think AA was talking about sparsha in the above quote.

Wow.  That's a really funny way of saying "look at shit before you decide what it is".

Look, asshole:  Your 'incomprehensible' act, your word-salad, your pinealism...It BORES ME.  I've been incomprehensible for so long, I TEACH IT TO MBA CANDIDATES.  So if you simply MUST talk about your pineal gland or happy children dancing in the wildflowers, go talk to Roger, because he digs that kind of shit

Some day perhaps?  I was really looking forward to your thoughts on the later circuits.
