note to coders, et al.

"Coders", take note!:

"n= n + 1", is obviously ...false! :lol2:

Make a note of it. ;)

But why 'n=n+1' can work in coding?

Through nonconceptuality, he is immovable.

Tee-hee. Funny man.

It's only cuz the compiler (or interpreter) allows it.

It sure doesn't "work", in ...Algebra! :heya:

In coding there are variables who can store, contain or to which can be assigned different values or data, like a bucket.

for example the int (short of integer) variable stores numbers and has default value of 0
so lets say we have an integer variable called n to which we assign data: int n = 1 and then n=n+1 will be correct, cause it is like you are adding more to the bucket


P.S Good one Joe :lol2:

Hello desert,

Mind is No-mind , No-Mind is mind

Would it be true if we say this?

"Saying" it really changes nothing (despite whether it's true or not to say). The key thing is to realize what is in fact the case. And, to appreciate if there is any "case", and any "fact". In other words, the key thing is to do as the Buddha did, and wake up. Our teacher and our sangha can help us, there, to establish our practice and to refine it.

But I'd say that what most of us much of the time call "mind", or "our" (one's... ) mind, is not mind at all, but motion, or motions, of something that we feel is internal. That is not mind. That is ...thoughts. Movements, not mind.

The American philosopher and psychologist William James described or defined (discussed... ) "thoughts" in his famous PRINCIPLES OF PSYCHOLOGY (1890) as a stream of movements behind the forehead. I'd say his entire "stream of consciousness" model is based on thoughts, not on mind.

best!,
