And then there are others that believe in something beyond themselves without the trappings of religious teachings, dogmas, doctrines and rituals.

And then there are others who choose to take an entirely different view of how they originally thought of themselves.

These 'others' came to the realisation that who they originally thought they were, is in fact a 'collection' of ever changing 'aggregates' in a continuous process of 'becoming'.

These 'others' came to realise that they had previously applied a label to this 'collection' calling it their 'self'.

These 'others' came to realise that since time immemorial, humanity had applied these names 'self', 'me', 'I', 'you' etc to amazing 'collections' of 'parts' that all exist in an interdependent relationship with all other 'collections' between which no clearly distinguishable demarcation boundary of any kind could be found anywhere, at any time, ever.

One of these 'others', namely the wise one of the Sakya tribe who had the ultimate realisation, came to realise that it is folly to look for an independent 'Supreme Collection' that pulls the strings of all other 'lesser collections'.

hmmmmm.........I could have sworn that soofoo had asked the question of "what is 'legion'"....and that is no longer on this thread.

So what is going on? I don't think I 'imagined' that!
