  1. Every subsequent teaching in human history simply reinterprets, reformulates, and chews up what was in the previous one. Buddhism is chronologically one of the oldest psychophilosophical concepts, so it is not surprising that the postulates and hypotheses that were present in it were interpreted in one way or another in a variety of ways – from Christianity to Nietzscheanism, from Freudian psychoanalysis to Gypsy hypnosis )

    So rather, on the contrary, there is nothing left in Buddhism for a long time that has not been thoroughly and repeatedly discussed in the framework of later concepts.

  2. Yes, Buddhists know much more about consciousness than any other clergy.�

    Like any sect, Buddhism is a way to control people.

    Christians promoted asceticism and renunciation of worldly goods, Muslims-slavish submission to the master (Caliph) and the destruction of all infidels.�

    The Buddhists did something very different. They have made stupidity and stupidity a virtue. It's no secret that stupid people are easy to manage, and stupid people who have no desires or aspirations in life, but only one dream, to become a vegetable, and even more so.

  3. Given that most religious systems speak about the existence of an eternal and unchanging soul in one form or another, and Buddhism speaks about the opposite – about anatta – the absence of a permanent and unchangeable “I” or “atta” and the impermanence of all psychic phenomena (including the “I” or “soul”), then we can probably say that Buddhists know about consciousness what everyone else does not know (or does not want to admit).
