My name's Justin, and I'm a Buddhist. I take bits from Hindu, and Taoist philosophy as well though. I blog about religion, politics, philosophy, and whatever else I feel like blogging about. I've grown a lot over the years, but I'm still far from where I want to be. If you have any questions then ask away! Don't be shy.

Enlightenment, in and of itself, changes nothing of historical circumstance; it is merely the negative term. In this specific sense, enlightenment is not eschatologically redemptive. (This opposed to the more naive gloss of, “it would be a difference of intent or “mindset” rather than materiality, of ‘mind over matter’”— as if the two were exclusive of each another.)

Every fact is a misinterpretation waiting to be born.
