I love how the roots of every Asian faith are subject to endless debate. The fact that they're not quite sure yet believe as hard as they can, anyway, is the very essence of such an open-minded faith. I admire that.

Indeed, belief is 100% of every individual reality conceivable. (Aside from this, 16,000 B.C. is a bloody impressive distance!) But yes, I agree, it definitely beats these "Of course I'm sure, because my way is the only way" dumbbells. A bee doesn't have to be sure that it's pollen. It just gathers it. I guess people usually say that mysticisms flowered from the various faiths in the world, but I dunno... I tend to think the mystic comprehension was here first. How else would you get so many people to follow? You can't get any electrons without a nucleus...
