With all mind and no body we become like a monk. With all body and no mind we become like a ninja. With body and mind together we become a master. A master has realized his Way. He has recognized himself. He flows with the Tao. He is One with God. It is not occult to experience God. The experience of God is the foundation of all religion and, in fact, all reality. Thousands of years ago, people didn’t have many things to base reality on aside from their own memories. Today, we have such an extensive supply of media that every moment in history is available to us. We therefore base most of our perception of reality on the way our sources of media portray it. Culture is most powerful in this way, when its memories have been mediated and centralized.
