No, I havent as you could probably tell from the bold text of the title.

The point I want to question is when you saw the title of the thread, were you happy for me? Hoping to prove me wrong? to gain some inspiration? Because you felt jealous?

What emotion were you feeling when you clicked on this thread? When you saw the big bold letters of the outragous claim and why?

I was irritated that that young pup, DM, seemed to be going Radzwellian on me (a previous troll whose M.O. was typing in all capitals).

I need to spice up my posts with more happy faces so I don't intimate the new guys.

My second thought was 'Oh boy, here we go...'. People DO experience various blissful cognitive states (call it what you will) and it can take a long time to get 'grounded'...to integrate the experience.

Lucky you...we are all so 'enlightened' at FA.com.

I was irritated and assumed that that young pup, DM, had posted another video from youtube or google.

Hey...I calls 'em like I sees 'em.

I was hoping for some goofy excuse for the entire post being in caps lock, like ur keyboard was messed up, and some brief view of how you were enlightened...then think "Hey, I knew that. Am I enlightened, too?"

Then, I'd have laughed at you.

I chuckled, assuming that it was a joke.

first thing I thought from the title was: Enlightenment...good for him...next thing to tackle would be punctuation.

I think I cheated. I was eating a bagel and wasn't really paying attention to what I was clicking or where I was going.


But I'm sure I looked past the caps and thought, "Oh, cool. Someone's a happy person."

Okay guys, enough with the jokes (though they are funny)

The point I was hoping to make in this thread was simply asking that if you met someone who had actually reached enlightenment, would you react differently to them as what you would normally act like when around others (who hadnt).

Can you honestly say that you would be yourself around them and not be a total butt kisser
