Dear Compiler,

The above is beautifully written. It reminds me of the existential agnst of
Sysiphus eternally rolling that huge stone to the top of the heap only to
have it roll back down again.

"What's the - - - - - - - point! "

Enter: the human heart. Enter: the transpersonal soul. One can integrate
the physical, emotional and lower mental life into one transpersonal Life
and at the very balancing point of the buddhic plane one can quietly slip
away and go out of one's mind with love, enough to come face to face with
the will aspect of "reality" and finally understand. The seven into the
three into the one: Total Unconditioned Consciousness(unconsciousness) The
top of the heap that is no-thing. Not being. Not non-being, but both.
