foodstuffThere is one naturally occurring, though animal-related, foodstuff that is said to never spoil — with or without refrigeration. That is pretty amazing. However, it is recommended that is not given to infants less than one year old. What is this foodstuff?


Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.


Yesterday’s ‘Think’: “Number of Buddhas” — Per Buddhist tradition, particularly per the ‘Theravāda School of Buddhism‘, as practiced in Sri Lanka, Burma, Thailand, Cambodia and Laos, the last Buddha, i.e., ‘Gautama’, c. 653 BCE to 480 BCE, was the 28th recognized Buddha. There were 27 Buddhas before him and others to come! The belief is that a new Buddha arrives on the scene when the teachings of the previous Buddha are no longer being observed. So, now you know. 28 Buddhas so far. If we assume that they were, on average, 2,000 years apart, that would say that we have had a succession of Buddhas for 56,000 years. WOW. Impressive.
