Quote from Mind is a Myth[edit]

"Nature is busy creating absolutely unique individuals, whereas culture has invented a single mould to which all must conform. It is grotesque." is clearly the correct form of a quote from Ch. 4 as it appears in published versions such as that at http://books.google.com/books?id=MVhaeewbyRYC&pg=PA100&dq=%22Nature+is+busy+creating+absolutely+unique+individuals%22&sig=ACfU3U0v1G142FZ_JPHKFEZR--94QUte2A rather than the nonsensical typo "culture has invited a single mold" that has cropped up on internet transcriptions. ~ Kalki 01:18, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

  • A real guru, if there is one, frees you from himself.
  • All learning, all teaching is for destructive purposes. You learn about the laws of nature to control and dominate your neighbor. It's a game of one-upmanship. I'm not saying anything against it. I'm just saying that's the way it is. All learning, all teachings are 'war games'. Winning all the time is all that you are interested in. Charity is the filthiest invention of the human mind: first you steal what belongs to everyone; then you use the policeman and the atom bomb to protect it. You give charity to prevent the have-nots from rebelling against you. It also makes you feel less guilty. All do-gooders feel 'high' when they do good.
