If there was an oracle who had all the true answers, what three questions would you wanted to asked the oracle ?

(You can only get answers to three questions max ) ;)

    No need for an oracle when you've got this.

  • The last oracle got them all wrong....hmmmm.
    Must have been the triple helix.

    The other two would probably be about luxury and English gentlemen.

    well, would the oracle include small talk into the number of questions? If so, then I'd probably make the first one, "How've you been?" lol, then:

    • what is the best occupation for me to make a living?
    • how can I make others happy?

    I would ask just the one question...What makes 'you' Mr Oracle happy ?

    (Douglas Adams - the Author of the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and its 3 sequels, also collaborated with another Author, John Lloyd, and they then came up with a book containing the names of real towns throughout the UK [And subsequently, elsewhere] and gave these wonderful place-names a secondary meaning... Some of which make me snort my coffee all over my chromebook screen, which I think, can only improve it.

    The attached document above, is the book painstakingly reproduced as a text, by an ardent admirer and lover of such humour. That's why it is in fact scattered with the odd typo... The book itself is eminently correct, and equally hilarious. Liff is a one-time sector of Dundee city, in Scotland. )

    I meant of course all the lottery numbers, and the Oracle know I misspelled it so out of compassion she will give them all, maybe I will share some of my millions of money with people in NB. Just send my your bank account and one really good reason why I should give it to you ;)

    Reason?
    I'm the Moderator, and I COULD Ban you (of course, I would never let the love of money sway me to such a heinous act.....)

    Permit me to open a new account for tax evasion purposes.
    I'll get back to you....

    I watched a youtube video recently of the Tibetan oracle for the first time. Can't remember which one. The wife and I had our mouths hanging open the whole time! There's nothing like that in our 20+ years of Zen practice, to say the least.

    I am still not sure what to make of it (OK, I am, it's nuts), other than, if that's how someone makes their decisions, count me out.
