Thanks for the nice link.

I can set the ball rolling with a few.
1) The longer the meditation the better
From my personal experience longer meditations are not necessarily "better".
It seems like we adjust for the length of time we have for meditation. Again
from my personal experience, after about 10 to 20 minutes, additional time
is not proportional to benefit. The 10-20 minutes has something to do with
how long it takes for certain physical reactions to take place.
2) A perfect lotus position is required if you want to be a serious
I spent many months in agony trying to perfect my mediation position. I did
not seriously start to meditate until I found a comfortable position.

The idea is to be able to detect flaws in logic as others present their

rules to one's own logical perception of things. Or not...grin.
