Talk #16 of the Series, Socrates Poisoned Again After 25 Centuries

You are surprising and shocking people by always giving contradictory answers to Germans. Why do you want to study the questions now beforehand?

"Just so that I can surprise you.You once said that to the same question you can give a thousand different answers. So why do you want to prepare for an interview?

"I never prepare for an interview. I simply want to see the questions to avoid you feeling embarrassed by my answers.

"If I see a stupid question I'm going to call it stupid. Not to hurt you, not to make you feel embarrassed I just look at your questions.

"There is no need for me to prepare.

"If I know I will answer; if I do not know I will simply say, 'I do not know.'Are there any questions you are not able to answer? Are there any questions you do not want to answer?

Osho continues:
"There are no questions which I do not want to answer, but there are millions of questions I cannot answer for the simple reason they do not interest me; they don't come into my world view. For example, if you start asking about biochemistry, physics, mathematics, I don't know, I cannot answer them…but they are not concerned with my way of life and my teachings.

"Whatever is concerned with my teachings, I am always ready to answer it as fully as possible.
You are always contradictory, as you say. Does that mean you always change your mind?
"If I had a mind I would not be contradictory. Mind is a computer. No computer ever contradicts; it gives always the same reply, it is always consistent.

"My state is of a no-mind.

"The mind is there for utilitarian purposes; for example, I am using it now to answer your questions. But my own being is beyond the mind; it is a state of no-mind.

"I contradict because life goes on changing. If you ask me in the morning I will say, 'It is morning'; if you ask me in the evening, do you want me to say it is morning just to be consistent? I will say, 'It is evening.'

"I say only that which is the case. It does not matter whether it contradicts anything said in the past. When it was said, it was absolutely true for the moment; what I am saying this moment is absolutely true to this moment. And there is no reason why you should bring those two different moments, two different situations together, and get unnecessarily puzzled that they are contradictory.

"Do you remember your own childhood? Have you not been contradicting yourself by changing your clothes every year? If you were still in the same clothes you had when you were six months old you would be really cute and very consistent!

"I do not think consistency is an intelligent value. Only idiots are consistent, because they cannot see the changing climates, they cannot see the changing details of life. It is changing every moment. The more intelligent you are, the more you will be changing with it."
