    Hello membots!

    I got a shock from the realization that the late J Krishnamurti - an
    appreaciated philosopher - seems to be a very early memetic writer!

    Some excerpts are quite revealing:

    "The observer is only a result from thoughts and recollections, devoid from
    any essential meaning or base in reality."


    "Have you ever realized that in the perfect state of observation you, the
    observer, you the thinker, the center cease to exist?"


    "Freedom from the known" 1969
    "Ajattelun tuolle puolen" Finnish translation 1973


    This was distributed via the memetics list associated with the
    Journal of Memetics - Evolutionary Models of Information Transmission
    For information about the journal and the list (e.g. unsubscribing)
