    While I don't disagree with it -- in fact, I think it's brilliant -- the final line kind of leaves one hanging. I interpret it to mean that what we've taken as the "self" (that is what we mean when we say "i," is Not, it does not exist, in the sense that it is illusory. But there is still a sentient being there, suffering and causing suffering to others. The series of 6 posts that are forthcoming attempts to go on from the Buddhist conclusion above -- I am Not -- to apply this new awareness to our interpersonal and political lives.

    Your take on it is most welcome.
