Nirvana may not be the correct word for the subject but I felt it was the most sufficient being that my definition of Nirvana would be "a state of being where the distinction of the self from others is blurred and all are one".
That being said. Could it be that since "cyberspace" is a realm lacking physicality and multiple users interface with each other, that this may be considered, in an abstract sense, a form of Nirvana?

pfft.. I'm an 'action philosopher' parachuting behind enemy lines to discuss Plato's divided line, with 19 points of articulation. Razz

Is that any relation to Eddie Izzard's "action transvestite?" (Not implying anything though :p)

I see myself as "stealth philosopher" sneaking around the forum in my stealth camo.
