Hi, Ed, Anthony

To help the others you should be able.
Without the oxygen mask, you could not help.

Extrem: only an oxygen mask.
Well, probably I will renounce to it on behalf of  anyone that is in my heart ( 
(yes, attachement. But compassion is also attachement, as I understand)

Any listizen have read Alfred Van Vogt books on Non-A worlds?

He said a thing that I find relevant: the word is not the thing, although many 
(myslef included) think in terms of words, not things. You should trascend 
words. I equal it to trascend duality.

Disclaimer: alfred got blind because he tried to cure his miopy looking at sun, 
as per a "something" that erases all dismissing mentions to it in internet 
prayed.

With best wishes

        ED,

        You say: Of what use is a dead bodhisattva to anyone?

        My suggestion: fly to Dharamsala and ask Dalai Lama. (It is an 
essential mahayana teaching that you should help others before helping 
yourself.)

        Anthony

          A mother who really cares for her child will put on her own oxygen 
mask first.
          On the other hand, "The life of an enlightened being is like the 
shadow of a bird on water."
