TRANSINTEGRAL EUROPEAN CONFERENCE
There is no better antidote to hubris than humor. Therefore, a banner to the hilarious blog hosted by Tutteji Wachtmeister Dai Osho has been added at the top of the homepage. Laugh or cry, it provides a mirror to all integralists.

HOW AMERICA KILLED BUDDHISM - BARCLAY POWERS
The process in which the West discovered Buddhism, mistranslated it, and created a radically distorted commercial version based on a middle class psychological quest for spiritual authenticity forms an interesting narrative. The Mindfulness industry, which excludes the essential Buddhist hypothesis of the complete liberation of consciousness, now has the backing of both science and the high tech corporate elite. The fact that the goal of Buddhism actually negates the entire premise of the Western philosophy of science, as well as Judeo Christian concepts of progress does not appear to have occurred to any of the prominent teachers and scholars that represent the commercial Buddhist establishment.

ECKHART TOLLE'S ENLIGHTENMENT AND KEN WILBER'S ENDARKENMENT - MARTIN ERDMANN
“I cannot live with myself any longer.” This was the thought that kept repeating itself in Eckhart Tolle's mind. Then from nowhere an idea hit him. “If I cannot live with myself”, so he deeply felt, “there must be two of me: the 'I' and the 'self' that 'I' cannot live with." He was “so stunned by this strange realization” that the second party, the myself, instantly dissolved. What remained was the one and only Self he had always been. This was Eckhart Tolle's blissful enlightenment.
“I can look at myself”, said Ken Wilber, and “anything at which l look must be an object of perception.” So he arrived at the conclusion that the myself is a real object. After his stunning realization he decided to unleash the greatest possible version of the myself in order to activate man's superhuman potential.
So he set out to get an utmost reward out of the myself, to draw a blessed profit out of the object, as which he sees himself. This is Ken Wilber's unhappy endarkenment.

THE REMARKABLE EULER FORMULA (in 3 parts) -PETER COLLINS
I read Andrew Smith's review of “The Mathematical Universe” [Getting to the Point] (and Elliot Benjamin's reply [The Mathematical Universe, Science and Euler's Formula]) with much interest.
As the worldview of the author Mike Hockney (apparently a pseudonym for a secret member of a Neo-Pythagorean group) is centred to a considerable extent on the Euler formula, I thought that it might be of interest to focus specifically on this remarkable relationship, the true significance of which greatly transcends what can be understood within the accepted analytic framework of Mathematics.
There is widespread agreement within mathematical circles regarding both the importance and beauty of the Euler formula (also referred to as the Euler identity, equation, theorem etc.)

RAZING WITH REASON - More Discussion of Illuminism - ANDREW P. SMITH
Several weeks ago, I posted a review of a book, The Mathematical Universe, by Mike Hockney [Getting to the Point]. Elliot Benjamin and Peter Collins have responded briefly to it, in the context of a larger discussion of Euler's equation and, in Peter's case, especially, other issues. As they are both mathematicians and I am not, I welcome their insights and don't have any particular comments on them at this time. In addition, though, Frank Visser notified me that he had received a response to my review by Pedro deJesus.
