Scaffolding can be a superfluous encumbrence unless there is that

There was a posting recently about 'the gap'. Essentially, TMers are 

being directed at finding this gap and prolonging the experience of 

not experiencing thought. But has anyone else noticed that the 

repetition of a mantra can sometimes be counterproductive in that in 

filling the gap, it appears sometimes to delay the experience of no 

thought? I have noticed that a swifter route to the gap is dropping 

thought altogether, just willing it.

Actually, part of the point of the post was that although TM uses the idea of the gap/sandhi to explain TM; in the full idea of what that entails, TM only goes as far as 1 or 1.5 out of 7. There are a whole slew of other methods beyond that to reach the big "E".

As a person offlist said to me that's what you call 'we were given one wheel, and lead to believe we had the whole bike.'
