@north,
...mind that what they have found they have found on the base of experience, and that although they can to a good extent communicate such experience the best way to convey it by suggesting to others to repeat the experience and see for themselves...this actually explains quite well why so many today convey ideas that they don´t truly understand precisely because they don´t ever meditate on them by themselves but in turn convey what they have read somewhere else...

so are we going to say that meditation then is the ultimate thinking process ?

@north,
...of course not, that is not the issue !
What as been said is that you need to experience meditation to compare it with any other form of knowledge...(not saying which is best)

@north,
It is NOT a thinking process, any more than is appreciating classical music. But it IS a profound mental activity.
