Anthony,

 

‘Just THIS!’ is not a system.  ‘Just THIS!’ is an exclamation.  I could just as 
well have uttered ‘Argghhh!’.

 

As you know I believe there is no system, just chaos – Just THIS!…Bill!

Bill,

 

YOu defeat your own words. 'Just THIS' is your system.

Anthony,

 

A better system is no system at all – Just THIS!

ED,

 

No. I too have a meaning system that helps me understand the world. The 
difference may be I am more flexible. Probably too much so. For example, I am 
looking for a better 'system' to explain the world, than the karma and rebirth 
theory. If you convince me, I will convert to the 'glory' of whatever you come 
up with.

Anthony,

Most or all on the Zen Forum appear to have a "meaning system that provides 
structure and helps them understand their world."

You appear to be the odd one out.  Are you?

"Brain study shows that thinking about God reduces distress -- but only for 
believers." August 4th, 2010.  <http://www.physorg.com/news200138848.html>

" "Thinking about religion makes you calm under fire. It makes you less 
distressed when you've made an error," says Inzlicht. "We think this can help 
us understand some of the really interesting findings about people who are 
religious. Although not unequivocal, there is some evidence that religious 
people live longer and they tend to be happier and healthier." Atheists 
shouldn't despair, though. "We think this can occur with any meaning system 
that provides structure and helps people understand their world." Maybe 
atheists would do better if they were primed to think about their own beliefs, 
he says."
