Well, you'd have to know this guy. I can't figure out whether he's a (new)

ultra-orthodox hassidic jew or an orthodox jew or a tibetan buddhist.

It's about the question of whether we have a soul that survives death.

SO maybe it was the pool he removed or the concept. The pool is still

there but the concept of what it was/is has changed???

2. The hillbillies in the Arkansas Ozarks call themselves hillbillies, in

my experience. I have a number of taped interviews in which I ask that

question and get that response. The interviews are from the 1970s.

But we (this inchoate ultra-orthodox-bardo-thodal-zen-jew

and I, as if there is a difference between us) also have an intuition

that there is another term for self and/or other reference to people from

the Ozarks, in contrast to people from the Appalachians. Is there such

a self or other reference term, or is our intuition wrong?
