New Buddhism





1.     A Buddha emerges

2.     Because of distress.

1.     A Buddha emerges if and when a universal principle has not been found and

2.     Which causes distress.

3.     A Buddha demerges/ends

4.     With the recovery and presentation of a universal principle.



1.     The buddha  function activates

2.     If and when distress is signalled.

3.     The buddha  function deactivates

4.     If and when the distress signal ends.






The metaphor Buddha describes a life system’s innate or inherent, because essential, capacity to uncover (indeed, abstract) a particular universal problem solving principle.

Failure to perform that particular operation @ best, therefore to completion ( perfection), is signalled to consciousness (i.e. to a system’s states monitoring function) as the various intensities of discomfort, i.e. distress, suffering, anguish and so on.

Since the buddha function applies itself to recovering the universal principles of resolving particular problems, the buddha function was previously iconised as a series of particular Buddhas.

The buddha function terminates with the recovery of a particular universal principle and its proclamation, the latter being (self-) ‘rewarded’ with the samma-sambuddho (i.e. the Eureka) experience.
