     This is the exact truth.

     The principles of ADORE have been around forever and have been
said by a million people in a million different ways in a million
different galaxies in a million different universes.

     I have never ever claimed that ADORE was original with me.

     It says in ADORE, I am the result of all who came before me and

     That Mark rejects it out of hand is fine.  But to claim that it should
be rejected because a million others have said it before me is ridiculous.
In fact if so many have said it, doesn't that imply it might have something
to it?

     Mark probably thinks that every religious person who ever went
off to a mountain to study his asshole for 20 years was wasting his
time in self delusion and fantasy, that no single congnition of worth
ever came from the experience and all such efforts are a waste of time.

     Well Mark, if self enlightenment is a total waste of time, then
what do you suggest we do with our 70 odd years of Earth?

     What is important to you?

>And if it's just his brilliant literary style,

     Gee, a fan.
