Alice from Seniors Zen

But had Desmond King-Hele retired in 2008, would he still feel the same way as he did in 1988?
I have a feeling he wouldn't :)
Skype and email, and internet and computers in general are not just useful tools that allow retired scholars, such as Ann Wintle or Richard West to carry on their work from home, but they are also... highly addictive. Freedom from these tools of continuous access and communication allowed King-Hele to let go and enjoy the rest of his life in piece, while for the rest of us it's no longer that easy to disconnect.


想及爱翁谈涉这话题的一段,Man tries to make for himself in the faishon that suits him best a simplified and intelligible picture of the world; he then tries to some extent to substitute this cosmos of his for the world of experience, and thus to overcome it. This is what the painter, the poet, the speculative philosopher, and the natural scientist do, each in his own faishon. Each makes this cosmos and its construction the pivot of his emotional life, in order to find in this way the peace and security which he cannot find in the narrow whirlpool of personal experience.
