Twitter Buddha-Think

Buddha is not-thinking mind: pure consciousness.

But when Shakyamuni Buddha — and myriad buddhas and bodhisattvas — open their mouths to describe reality, if they beamed themself to a 21st-century body, they might reveal things as I so often see coming from the mouth of this out-front thinker, the German AI/cognitive science researcher, Joscha Bach. It’s very, very wonky speech, extremely dry and abstract. But it has seeds for conveying the point to others: “Mental states exist only as representations.”
