    Reading this reminds me of math.

Greatly simplified, it turns out that this is impossible to do.
    In Zen math, 2 + 2 = 4 as any schoolchild knows.

    However, 2 + 2 = 2 too, and = 3,4,5.

    2 - 2 = 9 all down the line.

    2 = 4 = 7 = Buddha Heaven.

    And all or any numbers added, divided, subtracted or divided are simply 1 at the start, middle and end.

    .00001 = the 10,000 things

    1 + 1 =

    But don't think of as nothing but Zero.

    All the columns always in balance, whatever is put in them.

    Something like that.

    This Sangha is a real treasure, but one comprising humans who sometimes come together and sometimes push apart. But it's still a treasure. As far as I'm concerned, there would be no Buddhism without Treeleaf. Now, my practice, on the other hand, especially lately feels more like fool's gold than a Treasure. A fallow time. Waiting for the harvest. Need to get on the cushion regularly. No posturing at the gate for me. More like falling asleep under it!

    Buddhist math, as explained by Jundo above, is way easier for me than algebra

    Galen,

    It seems you really like playing teacher and pooring oil on fire.
    Could please look into your self? I am sure it would help.

    PS: if may add the following pointer, you have a fine mind and your wisdom ability is quite impressive, much like one of Dogen s students, you could be asked to develop your grand mother mind, embracing and compassionate mind.
