You do know that’s fake right?
No, I didn’t. It looks like it’s real. I stumbled on it. Thanks for letting me know, Andrew. : )
If you look, you can see the screen (it’s a screen, not a window) letterboxing after the “attack”. It’s a touch screen set up to be a cool prank. Still funny, but no, not real.
Wow. A screen. I missed that clue at the beginning completely (“Touch the screen”). An interesting lesson in making assumptions (and how we can so easily frame things incorrectly). The classic example in Hinduism is mistaking a rope for a snake.
With regard to Hinduism (specifically the Hindu philosopher Shankara), likening self/nonself with rope/snake, I found this at Wikipedia: “Because of the superimposition of the non-self on the self, the existence of the self is not recognized at all, and the non-self, (that is, the body, mind and organs), is alone recognized as existing. This is Svarupa-Adhyasa. In the superimposition of the self on the non-self, only the existence and consciousness aspects of the self are attributed to the body, mind and organs. This is Samsarga-Adhyasa. The result of this mutual superimposition is that every one identifies himself with the body. This is the root cause of all suffering. Giving up this wrong identification with the body-mind complex and realizing that one is the self which is beyond all suffering and all the pairs of opposites such as heat and cold, success and failure and so on, is Vidya or knowledge. It is this knowledge that is contained in the Upanishads.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adhyasa)
