Death, Meaning & the Nature of the Cosmos

     “At the deepest level, I would suggest that meditation was a technique developed to address, in some form, certain control issues related to death, meaning, the nature of the cosmos. As such, it has been used as a technique to help gain experiential understanding about the nature of the universe, reality, and oneself at the deepest and most fundamental level of knowing.”
