MF Discussion topic for March 2003

  • Next message: David Buchanan: "MF March 2004 - Metaphysics and the mystical reality."

    Hi all,

    We have a new topic for discussion this month, March. It is Topic 1 proposed by David M Buchanan:
    "Does Pirsig's work help us to sort out the distinctions between metaphysics and the mystical

    Voting broke down as follows:

    Horse: 1
    David Buchanan: 1
    Marty Jorgensen: 2
    Lloyd Klinedinst: 1
    Sam Norton: 1
    Wim Nusselder: 2
    Rick Valence: 2

    Note that I haven't included Glenn as voting for his own proposal, as he didn't send in a separate
    vote. I'm not sure if that's absolutely correct, but as DMB voted separately (ie in addition to his
    proposal), it seemed better not to count the proposal itself as a vote. It Glenn had voted in favour
    of his own topic then we would have had a tie, so at least this way we have a definite answer to be
    going on with.

    Opinions on the February topic are still invited.




    1) Members must have read both ZEN AND THE ART OF MOTORCYCLE MAINTENANCE and LILA.
    2) LILA'S CHILD by Dan Glover with annotations by Robert Pirsig is also *highly* recommended.
    3) Members may post only two messages per week (except for topic-question suggestions, voting, and
    4) Every post must be relevant to the topic-question.
    5) Members must express themselves clearly, concisely and courteously.
    6) Members may not use html email nor send attachments.
    7) Although there is no strict word-limit on posts, members are asked to try and keep posts to a
    reasonable length.
    8) The MF moderator reserves the right to block any posts which break these rules.
    9) If a member believes his or her post has been unjustly blocked by the moderator, the moderator's
    decision may be appealed one time to the full Steering Committee. The decision of the Steering
    Committee is final.
    10) Posts which are blocked from MF by the moderator should not be posted to MD without the express
    permission of the moderator or the Steering Committee. Reposting to MD in the absence of such
    permission could result in action from the Discussion Facilitators ranging from a gentle warning and
    reminder of the forum rules to permanent removal from one or both lists.
