Why Is This So Good?

"When my master and I were walking in the rain, he would say, 'Do not walk so fast, the rain is everywhere.' " --Shunryu Suzuki

The koan here is that there is no riddle. It illustrates the Hyperobject.

It strikes me that TM's work can also be viewed as a considered non-fiction version of Kurt Vonnegut. I actually never cared for KV's writing but what I read was enormously insightful. With TM I get positive affect and insight. One might seed clouds 100 km to the West or game the koan in some reductive manner but the abundance of rain as an idea is always there. Sort of like Jenny Holzer's aphorism "the time is always now".

Taking out incorporation papers for the Church of OOO soon and I hope to be its first registered minister.
