    you're 180 degrees from center with all this.

    If you're worrying and on this earth, you need to be taking action, not 86ing life. breathe.

      from a point on the circumference of a circle, but I don't understand how you can be 180 degrees from the center of the circle. Being removed from the center would be a line straight out from the center or the radius. Then another line straight out from the center would be the other radius. If these two lines were 180 degrees it would be the diameter.

      I never got math and religion is not far behind. I enjoy it though.

          analogies. It works better no one you are apt to run into understands either. :)

          the fish line goes in the water. It seems to jump over a couple of inches and continue on down in the water. That place where it jumps over, is like religion. The air and water fish line will never ever ever match up, it will always jump over.

            there is a reflection of your mind.  : )

            I did mean for my initial reply to be abstract :  you're 180 degrees from center with all this... circular logic, never resolves. Love the idea that it's a koan!
