17. About the Compiler
Being interested in the questions of life and death since early childhood, he came in contact with books of Georg Grimm in early 1977. Grimm's clear and concise presentation convinced himin a very short time that Gotamo Siddharto's teachings have a solid basis in reality, far from the many cultural distortions that are making up (sic!) the picture of today's prevailing 'Buddhist' circles.
As early as Spring 1978, Max was thinking of writing a contemporary summary of Gotamo's ideas, still seen predominantly through the filter of Grimm's perception. It should take twenty years until the time seemed right to finally start this project.
In the meantime, he has studied a variety of modern technologies of the mind, many of which are better not disclosed. Tired of pseudo-scientific attempts to forcefully bend Gotamo's teachings into the framework of contemporary 'Science' as well as the romantic glorificationand illogical myths around the 'Buddha', he rarely engages in private or public conversations about the aspects of Gotamo's teachings.
It comes therefore
as quite a surprise that he has now indeed compiled more than hundred chapters
for the "Little Purple Notebook On How To Escape From this Universe".
