Prickles and Goo

Today I'm offering something on the lighter side.

This video provides a cute illustration of some of the tensions that can build between those approaching mindfulness from an empirical standpoint and those who approach it more traditionally. That said, I think there's a little bit of prickles and a little bit of goo in all of us.

The narration is a clip of Alan Watts. Watts had a profound impact on the West in making Buddhism, particularly Zen, accessible to the English-speaking world. Watts published The Spirit of Zen in 1936 and continued to speak and publish until his death in 1973. The animation is by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
