No Name Club

Ever happy to glean ideas from dubious sources, I was glancing at that dreadful movie The Bulletproof Monk (BPM) as I was skimming the TV channels the other day and became intrigued by the BPM's practice of dropping his name (and not replacing it with another) at the highest level of his training. It made think about the way that our names allow us to be referred to when we are not present, and that names aren't always terribly important when we are present. And if we are always present to ourselves then ...? Still thinking ...

The Bulletproof Monk is all heart. (BPM. Geddit?)
