Comment of the Week
“Regarding this week’s SWS, I believe you are conflating a cliched pop culture term, that doesn’t really have an agreed-upon definition with a complete misunderstanding of what monastic life actually is. Frankly, it’s a mess. Spending a period of time, away from distractions and outside influence in order to focus, think deeply, and crystallize one’s ideas followed by getting those ideas out in the world is how real progress is made. Breakthroughs don’t happen through groupthink or committees. I could go on, but basically, you are suggesting a false choice.“
