Home fries is what we get when the house burns down. Calf fries is what we get when the calf burns down. Like, sea food comes from the sea, so cat food has to come from....

Definition: Tathagata:

Literally, "one who has become authentic (tatha-agata)," an epithet used in ancient India for a person who has attained the highest religious goal. In Buddhism, it usually denotes the Buddha, although occasionally it also denotes any of his arahant disciples.

Usually translated as "Thus Come One." He who came as did all Buddhas, who took the absolute way of cause and effect, and attained to perfect wisdom; one of the highest titles of a Buddha (Charles Luk).

According to Buddhist tradition, the title chosen for Buddha by himself. The title was intended to convey his identity as a perfect being, though the precise meaning of the word remains problematic. Etymologically, it can be read as (i) 'thus-gone' (tatha gata) or 'thus-come' (tatha agata), generally taken to mean 'one who has gone (or come)' ie attained emancipation; (ii) 'one come (agata) to the truth (tatha)'. The etymology may itself be suspect, however, since it is

As for the other puzzle it comes from something similar to this:

There is the leisurely one,
Walking the Tao, beyond philosophy,
Not avoiding fantasy, not seeking truth.
The real nature of ignorance is the Buddha-nature itself;
The empty delusory body is the very body of the Dharma.

When the Dharma body awakens completely,
There is nothing at all.
The source of our self-nature
Is the Buddha of innocent truth.
Mental and physical reactions come and go
Like clouds in the empty sky;
Greed, hatred, and ignorance appear and disappear
Like bubbles on the surface of the sea.

When we realize actuality,
There is no distinction between mind and thing
And the path to hell instantly vanishes.
If this is a lie to fool the world,
My tongue may be cut out forever.

Once we awaken to the Tathagata-Zen,
The six noble deeds and the ten thousand good actions
Are already complete within us.
In our dream we see the six levels of illusion clearly;
After we awaken the whole universe is empty.

No bad fortune, no good fortune, no loss, no gain;
Never seek such things in eternal serenity.
For years the dusty mirror has gone uncleaned,
Now let us polish it completely, once and for all.

Who has no-thought? Who is not-born?
If we are truly not-born, We are not un-born either.
Ask a machine if this is not so.
How can we realize ourselves
By virtuous deeds or by seeking the Buddha?

Release your hold on earth, water, fire, wind;
Drink and eat as you wish in eternal serenity.
All things are transient and completely empty;
This is the great enlightenment of the Tathagata.

Excerpted from: SHODOKA
by Yung Chia (665 - 713)

If a man is crossing the river and an empty boat collides with his skiff,
even though he is a bad-tempered man he will not become very angry.
But if he sees a man in the other boat
he will scream and shout and curse at the man to steer clear.

If you can empty your own boat crossing the river of the world,
no one will oppose you, no one will seek to harm you.
This is the perfect man - his boat is empty. - Chuang-tzu

A sword cannot cut itself.
Desire cannot overcome itself.
Self cannot understand itself.
The Way cannot be followed by trying.

I am stunned at Rapaire's mastery of the issues. His recent inventory of the unthinkable and the undoable is awe-inspiring.

However, I must take exception to his blundering ineptitude when it comes to sloganeering.

May I suggest you steer away from politics, sir?

I would add Economic Introspection to your list. Also, counter-productivity Vortices, Constitutional Demoralization, Obsessive Iconographics, Rampant Emotional Vulcanism, Drive-by Apathy, and Mandatory Spiritual Destitution as major campaign issues. They all need something done, the sooner the sooner.

And like the baseless fabric of this vision

The solemn temples, the great globe itself—
Yea, all which it inherit—shall dissolve,
And like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.

In other news -- this may be important -- a breakthrough in the field of Viral Vectors:

"Using Nanoparticles, In Vivo Gene Therapy Activates Brain Stem Cells

July 26, 2005
      
"Using customized nanoparticles that they developed, University at Buffalo scientists have for the first time delivered genes into the brains of living mice with an efficiency that is similar to, or better than, viral vectors and with no observable toxic effect, according to a paper published this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
        
"The paper describes how the UB scientists used gene-nanoparticle complexes to activate adult brain stem/progenitor cells in vivo, demonstrating that it may be possible to "turn on" these otherwise idle cells as effective replacements for those destroyed by neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson's.

"In addition to delivering therapeutic genes to repair malfunctioning brain cells, the nanoparticles also provide promising models for studying the genetic mechanisms of brain disease.

"Until now, no non-viral technique has proven to be as effective as the viral vectors in vivo," said co-author Paras N. Prasad, Ph.D., executive director of the UB Institute for Lasers, Photonics and Biophotonics, SUNY Distinguished Professor in UB's Department of Chemistry and principal investigator of the institute's nanomedicine program. "This transition, from in vitro to in vivo, represents a dramatic leap forward in developing experimental, non-viral techniques to study brain biology and new therapies to address some of the most debilitating human diseases."

"Viral vectors for gene therapy always carry with them the potential to revert back to wild-type, and some human trials have even resulted in fatalities.

"As a result, new research focuses increasingly on non-viral vectors, which don't carry this risk.

"Viral vectors can be produced only by specialists under rigidly controlled laboratory conditions. By contrast, the nanoparticles developed by the UB team can be synthesized easily in a matter of days by an experienced chemist."
