And all of this means that you expected to LOSE from the start? So why bother?

I was surprised to know that the legendary martial artiste Bruce Lee was influenced to a large extent by the philosophy of J Krishnamurti. .

Unanswered--- Are you really saying that a contingent fee is not linked to EXPECTATIONS?
Not at all. Market sets the percentage. Percentage currently for PI is 1/3.{Hugh, I don't think I can answer this again. Please read what I wrote.}

Bruce Lee was attempting a unique perfection of his body via an advanced method of physical training sans the supramental consciousness-force that alone can perfect the human body.

Typical Hugh not being able to let go. Hugh can never be incorrect. He'll beat the dead horse forever just to wear you down and no have to acknowledge he was incorrect. And this is a case where it was not even a real error on his part. It was a scenario that he hadn't considered. He could have bowed out with a simple "I didn't think of that." or "I never knew that situation occurred."

QUESTION:

In view of the fact that this so-called G-d of the Bible is an imperfect entity who is far from being an omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient deity but who is instead a typal being of falsehood, terror, mass murder, war, tribalism, abusiveness, intolerance, jealousy and lies thus what would be the fate of this so-called G-d when its evil karma catches up with it? Will it be severe punishment or dissolution for it and for those who worship it?

GREATER REALITY, ABSOLUTE CHANGE & ABSOLUTE REST:

Frequent change results in caprices and instability.

Adaptation to change is another thing.

The Buddhists/Confucius saw everything in nature, being and external life as a mass of perpetual change but what they forgot to take into consideration is that change is relative - greater change can be observed only with respect to lesser change.

Since there exists a range of movements related to different degrees of change with each stage being replete with its innate phenomena thus as said earlier the phenomenon of change is a gradation and so we logicically conclude that since change is a gradation of movements thus at its highest end it should manifest as absolute change and at its lowest end it should manifest as absolute rest. Without these two extremities, change cannot exist by itself since change in all its gradations has to be anchored in these extremities - absolute rest and absolute change - with these two extremities being aspects of a greater reality.

True happiness lies in stationing oneself not in the movements but by entering into the root cause behind the extremities.

NAME & -FORM

Since space-time-causation give rise to multiple graded phenomena, a higher psychological generalization of space-time-causation would be termed name and form of subtle or gross types.

SPACE-TIME-CAUSATION IS AN INSEPARABLE TRIUNE:

1) SPACE is of varying kinds - gross physical, subtle physical, vital, mental and supramental - and is the graded manifestation of the energy of consciousness.

2) TIME is the progressive rhythmic wave generated by the energy of space that is perceived by the consciousness as a movement flowing from past to present to future.

3) CAUSATION is the inherent mechanism in the energy of consciousness that acts in manifest and unmanifest modes giving rise to an interlinked cause-effect chain of events in space-time.

ULTIMATE REALITY:

Beyond space-time-causation, or beyond its higher generalization which is name and form, lies the absolute or the state of pure potentiality in which inheres the totality of information in terms of pure consciousness with its inherent pure energy.
