      ASSIMULATION TO GOD AS SELF-KNOWLEDGE IN ENNEAD 1.2


      The comparison of Plotinus and Buddhism on the unreality of the
      (pleasures of the) world is now available at:

      ame.html

      The treatment of Plotinus' composite ('other') man also has
      S�nkhya overtones, and Sumi even resorts to Vedantic metaphors.
      It would be interesting to contrast all these 'deconstructive'
      attitudes to the world with the (Pratyabhij�� and) Christian
      defense of the (Supreme) Person.
