Excellent piece (Just a note - the link to your recounting the Avengers comic book incident is broken - i found the right link by googling...) I loved this bit from the other post : " I had realized after his lecture that to get anyplace in Buddhism, the adept must have a real time spiritual epiphany of Mind seeing Mind. You can’t cheat yourself, either. You either do it or you have to resign yourself to a life of doing good works with every fiber of your being. " That seems to me the perfect method to proceed.

Kojizen - then what does one do?
The only means acceptable we have for attaining nirvana or awakening (bodhi) is to transcend the psychophysical body. This is what the Buddha teaches throughout the Pali canon. This sounds right. But how does one transcend the psychophysical body - what method does the Buddha prescribe?
For arguments sake... What if it had of been a liberal who hood winked T-Pain into doing the drop....would this have come up? Or did we just assume there's no way T-Pain could be a conservative?
