Keep Out of the Reach of Children

Keep Out of the Reach of Children
by Scott Bradley


Many of the ideas expressed here are down-right dangerous and should be kept out of the reach of children. I say this now to limit my liability. I do not say, Do not try this at home. But please read the instructions thoroughly before use.

The problem is the vast disconnect between ideas and the realities which give them birth. To be armed with an idea without the reality can result in all manner of mayhem, and can lead to serious injury or even death.

Some might take the idea that there is no right and wrong, for instance, and use it to justify a rampage of terror and carnage throughout the land. Others might take the idea that all you are and do is Tao and become egomaniacal beasts, demigods enslaving the weak and vulnerable. Of course none of you would do these things; you only worry that others would. Why is that?

So please remember that the ideas are meant to help us find the reality, and until that happens, we must handle them with great care.
