-== WHY AM I DOING THIS? ==  
-Because I am excited about Capriles'​ work, and being myself a practitioner of Dzogchen teachings transmitted by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu rinpoche I like very much the attempt to use this standpoint for looking at Western philosophy, ideology and more or less hidden metanarrations that drive our society at this time. I belive it could be useful for others too.</​WRAP>​

- 
-**Message from Elías (23th November)**:​ "Dear Martin, 
- 
-Very good. I think Dec. 17 would be better. And the best would be if you could send me q list of queries on Dec. 14, asking people to refer the queries to the relevant pages of the book (whichever of the books it is, though I assume most will be about BB). This is good so I have time to confront the questions with the relevant book pages, as I deal with so many different subjects that it is not automatic that at any moment I can keep everything in mind about one of the subjects I deal with. 
- 
-I am choosing the later date because before that I will be involved in revising the Italian translation of my book in aesthetics, since the Italian lady who translated it will be here in Tenerife for the Chöd retreat and a little after, and so I would have no time to do the confrontation of queries with book pages. 
- 
-If this is good for you please let me know. 
- 
-I have another problem, which is that the Internet is very slow and on some days unavailable in Hotel Gran Callao, which is where I see my Internet. There is a cybercafe where I believe there may be a better connection, but then I would be doing my thing from a cybercafé. So I would have to arrange it with them in advance to make sure I will not disturb if I do an activity of the kind from their café. 
- 
-Sincerely, 
- 
-Elías"​ 
- 
-15.12.: "As to the answers, I won't really prepare them; just check if there are some that require me revising my own texts so as to be more precise. I prefer to respond more spontaneously. 
- 
-Yes, look forward to Monday, hoping that there will be no technical problems."​
