You know, Rick, if *Curtis* is willing to give the guy a bit of benefit of the doubt on this, you might want to think about whether your image of MMY is a little twisted. I once had a vision of the moon in space--*very* different quality from any picture I've ever seen-- during sutra practice. If *I* could have had such a perception, I should think MMY could have had one of the earth in space. For that matter, we've been seeing photos of the earth in space for, what, 40 years. Nobody has to "actually see it" to call up a clear mental image of it whenever they want.
