TSM135 : What is the Self ? The 5 Aggregates and Process Fields

June 13, 2017

In today's walk and talk I explore the self through the Buddhist concept of the 5 Aggregates and Process Fields (my own idea, which is simlar to Alfred White Northhead's Process Philosophy) and ask how we are to live when we can embrace a wider concept of self.

During the early part of this walk, I examine two dead sheep - who provide a real life example of the nature of the self. Don't look if images of death frighten you. These things are a part of my day to day reality and reguarly remind me of the nature of the self.
