in principle, it will become possible for organic human brain to be synthetically copied any number of times and also become possible to be edited in various ways

 - not that I am suggesting in any way, shape or form that that would be a good thing.  simply to understand, to help pave way as to how to avoid such an unwelcome scenario.

peace and blessings

Love,

 Smiley

~Inner Peace & Non-attachment~

"I think one of the great joys of spiritual practice is that we begin to get an experiential appreciation and love of silence, not only verbal silence but silence of mind. When the mind actually quiets down because there's a quality of inner peace and relaxation and openness and ease and intimacy-- when the mind is not chattering all the time.
There's a restraint from speech, that is the beginning of that process of allowing the mind to quiet down. And that's not an austerity, that's actually a joy! You know, we feel much more connected...

Usually we're so caught up in our habit patterns we're not being that mindful so we're often doing the very things that cause us to suffer.
Buddha kind of summed up the whole thing in one sentence. He said, "Nothing whatsoever is to be clung to as I or mine."
He said, "Whoever understands this has understood all the teachings." So all the teachings are an elaboration of seeing through the illusory nature or conceptual nature of self, of I, of ego. And all the teachings are just helping to facilitate seeing that with clarity.

Because if you hold on to something that in it's nature is changing you're going to suffer. It's not the experience of the changing phenomenon that's a problem it's the fact that we're holding on to something that in it's nature is not going to last.

This can be clarified by the distinction of two words which people often get confused. Often people understand in Buddhism that there's a great value with "detachment" and that sounds a little grey. You know just to be detached from everything.

That's not what the Buddha's teaching is about. The teaching is about non-attachment. Detachment implies a sense of withdrawal. Non-attachment doesn't imply withdrawal it simply implies not holding on.

So that's a very different experience, it's a very different mind-set, and that's really what we're practicing."
