Modeling by Buddha

The Buddha said: “All descriptions of reality are temporary hypothesis“. How true!  So if descriptions of reality are hypothesis, so must be descriptions in the form of models, plans, strategies, views, viewpoints, etc. of reality. But we humans (not you and me but all the others ofcourse) often love to model reality. And by making a model, we create an illusion of how and what we think reality is, was, or should become. And we often use these models to govern. Now that might be a little naive. Perhaps a little “Zen” can help here: model often, but also throw away often. Don’t model to gain the ‘truth’ of reality. Model only to gain understanding. Don’t model to govern, but model to understand. Happy Buddha modeling!
