“I have no wish to defend my ‘vices’ with propaganda, making out that they are in fact virtues which others should follow. I am only saying that I distrust people who show no sign of naughtiness or self-indulgence.” ~Alan Watts

Seeing Is Believing

In the same manner that the word red has no real meaning to one who has not seen it, the word nirvana or any other experience has no real meaning until experienced. Communication happens by associating various memories of non-verbal experiences to words, and fidelity of the message requires all involved in the communication to have shared similar experiences.
