    I can relate to some of this. I think there is a link between otherness
    and attraction. What is the place of Eros in the MOQ? Is Eros a yearning
    for the unity of the One in the realm of the many? So why has DQ taken
    the road to the creation of the many?

      sometimes love seems subject to a quantum indeterminacy all its own...

      i remember the part of Lila(?) where Pirsig talks about the Dharmakaya, the "divine light" .. speaking from my own experiences whenever i fall for someone in a long term sense.. when i first see them.. they are absolutely dripping in dharmakaya and once tasted, i can stay a drunkard for years...

      im too young to be able to speak of 'mature love' or anything past 5 years.. (i just turned 21) but i am quite qualified to speak of intense attraction. I believe that aside from the Dharmakaya-DQ experience.. people , if they have stagnated, are drawn to that which challenges their built up static patterns.. in my case, following the dharmakaya and 'dynamic quality' had *become* my static pattern.. and for about 2 years a 30 year old stockbroker and a 19 year old punk/goth girl became absolutely inseperable. i think it's the desire to experience the 'other' and perhaps assimilate it. i become fascinated with the other-ness of the person's way of thoughts, even their sentence structure seemed alien and inconceivable to me, not in a frightening, isolating way, but in an exciting way. ("i cant believe im having dinner with a republican!!!")

      sorry no obscure references here, just experience.. i'm just glad theres somewhere i *can* reference ZMM and Lila, because to my group of friends, those are obscure references, inside jokes with an audience of one.

      ummm.. thats my story and im sticking to it..


        is love one example of DQ experiencing
        DQ in an other? Do we love SQ structures/laws? Do we love SQ
        structures when we experience them as exhibiting a form of achievement?
        How often we value things that are fleeting, like youthful beauty.

        Comments please.
