Is thought detrimental? 15 August 1965. Duration: 63 minutes. Why does one seek pleasure? Can the mind face only facts and not thought? Why have I never said, ´Thought is poison´ to myself?

Is the background noise different from the observer? How am I to live an everyday life with complete silence? What will make me see that thought breeds frustration? 21 August 1965. Duration: 78 minutes. What is the function of thought? Can the mind see the fact that thought will always breed frustration? Function is necessary, but function with status, position and power must breed frustration. Without frustration thought says to itself, ´I am not seeking.
