  1. I burn away the material elements of myself and other people all the time. I visualise lasers (or some other clean force) stripping off the physical layers one by one until all that’s left is the imperishable. Sounds extreme and violent, but no-one is harmed in the process, and it works for me when trying to go beyond the body.

      1. I can’t get inside the lotus blossom for some reason. I appreciate it as an intellectual construct, but I can’t get inside the feeling of it. But plasma – that shows real promise! Quick, powerful and clean – thanks. 🙂

  2. Interesting statement, but very much open for interp. What qualifies as “annihilation”? Is this another way of saying, “What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger”? Or is it deconstructive nihilism, or something else altogether?
