‘Certain people would like to use technology to live longer, or forever… To such people I humbly propose a far more parsimonious way to live forever: to exit the trajectory of productive time, so that a single moment might open almost to infinity. As John Muir once said, “Longest is the life that contains the largets amount of time-effacing enjoyment.”‘ (How To Do Nothing)

Or, as Dogen once said, in the same spirit, “the zazen of even one person at one moment imperceptibly accords with all things and fully resonates through all time.” I will be adding my own spin on these notions in my upcoming class.
