Steve Jobs Reincarnated As a Warrior-Philosopher, Thai Group Says

timothy posted about a year and a half ago | from the in-death-as-in-life dept.

Apple 223

Velcroman1 writes "When Apple founder Steve Jobs died after a long fight with cancer last year, software engineer Tony Tseung sent an email to a Buddhist group in Thailand to find out what happened to his old boss now that he's no longer of this world. This month, Tseung received his answer. Jobs has been reincarnated as a celestial warrior-philosopher, the Dhammakaya group said in a special television broadcast, and he's living in a mystical glass palace hovering above his old office at Apple's Cupertino, Calif. headquarters."

Not only is he a fuckin' marketer focused on spending his billions hurting others for his own fun, some nuts claimed he reincarnated! The guy is not even a technologist for *hrist sake! Who is he now so I can start hating him 2 minutes every morning again?

Re:Who gives a fuck? (5, Insightful)

gagol (583737) | about a year and a half ago | (#41197243)

For the record, I used to admire the guy and even dreamed to work with him. His decisions and general attitude in the last years of his life made him look (in my light) worse than the "evil ibm" he was fighting against in early 80's. The single fact he once stated he would sue the hell out of android with every penny of his personal fortune really helped me put things in perspective, and I pretty much hate him right now... one have to realize the "illusion of grandeur" he was suffering from... and he died from it too by exclusively using alternative medicine to treat a cancer. That says a lot to me, and I think he got what he deserved... Something called Karma maybe?

The early 1980s was an interesting time. I remember Microsoft being our bulwark of defence against the evil IBM empire while Apple were playing panflutes in apple groves and suing the pants of anyone who made anything vaguely compaitible. By the late 1980s there was one very prescient scribe, I can't remember his name because all I get is Dvorak but that is a keyboard and not journalist, who said that he had seen the future and that MicroSoft (they spelled it that way then) would be the one Boss, the True Boss and the only Boss and that William Gates III would be the Dark Overlord. It seemed laughable at the time - but it nearly came to pass.

*sigh* no...Karma determines what happens to you in the next life. It has zippo to do with this life. In this life you accumulate karma (or don't, that's why priests sit on mountaintops and do nothing, to avoid karma) and it determines what you become after your death.

I went from techno-literate urbanite, to a country living human who is enclined technologically, raising his own food. The deep core of Steve Jobs was a little bit how I became, but he ventured away from the true path of nature living! And yes, I live my life with technology, only I have some real good nice time to think about my solutions while feeding animals...

There's plenty of prior art. The whole concept - palace, hovering high above, warrior/philosopher - reads like a rip-off of Dragon Ball Z or something. I guess they'll have to litigate with Japanese cartoon writers.

TaoPhoenix (980487) | about a year and a half ago | (#41197993)

Naw, let me try to voice a bit of sensitivity.

Let's just say that the arts of dissecting fundamentalist faiths was perfected during the 20th century, so they are here since the start of the 21st. Those monks were not trolling, it was probably a really "classical" answer to the question. The deep problem with truly fundamental classical religious thought is that by this age, we've lost the respect for the old ways. Of course he's not in a "fancy glass house" at 192487 Dharma Boulevard. I'd garner that there's well over 60% chance that this is a "parable". At my feeble level as a post-modern blended-faith Buddhist, the interpretation might be "Steve Jobs exists as the sum of the memories of anyone who has been impacted by him, and how you view your life since he passes determines how you think of him now that he is gone".

He was a sociopath. Society's laws didn't apply to him.

When the king dies, the new king gets to use the crown. He dies and someone else steps up. A country won't change with the death of its leader, people's minds must change or things will stay the same.

How exactly does this group know that a baby is going to be a warrior or a philosopher when it is not even a year old? Let alone being Jobs Himself?

If Steve Jobs had been reincarnated it would have to happen after Steve is dead, and so any baby born after the moment of his death is a candidate.

But this is one hell of an extraordinary claim to make, so lets see if they have some extraordinary evidence to support this claim, then we can that the thought seriously.

Great Karma (4, Funny)

Anonymous Coward | about a year and a half ago | (#41197205)

I too once had a great Karma, a Karma Ghia. It too was reincarnated many times. When I got my Karma, it had no compression. I had traded an old Dodge for it, which had no brakes.
    When we pulled the oil drain and peered inside, we saw quite a mess. Little chunks of twisted metal everywhere. It was terminal. So we just put the oil drain back, and drove the Hell out of it for five years, occasionally adding oil and gasoline.
    It was quite an Educator- I taught four people how to drive in it. It had a nose of Wonder; it was crushed beyond recognition when my two sisters managed to sequentially run it head on into both a Citroen Maserati and a Ferrari 250GT. The other two cars were undamaged.
    It never managed to hover. It did manage to float down a steep muddy hillside. There were mushrooms growing on the back package tray.
    The coil was held in place with a shoelace, and the battery was kept from dragging on the ground with several layers of deteriorated cardboard stashed underneath.
    I don't know its inevitable demise, it was passed on from family to friend, to friend, to friends of friends, to whoever; only the All Knowing DMV in the Sky knows for sure.
    My Karma wasn't Buddhist. I think that it might have been a Lutheran.

Head's dead, he lives in peoples memories (0)

Anonymous Coward | about a year and a half ago | (#41197237)

Head's dead, but he lives on in peoples memories.

Your brain simulates much of the world. You don't actually see all you see, your brain assembles it mostly from memory and recognition. People too, you don't see their details, their faces, don't hear all their words, your brain is constantly projecting your preconception of them and assembling the narrative for you.

It's a bandwidth saving feature if you will, but it means that part of that person is running on you. It's not 100% on CPU_Main, that person is perhaps only 10% CPU_Main and the rest running in the brains of people around them.

When the body dies, CPU_Main dies with it, but the rest? No, they live on. They'll even seek to find CPU_Main somewhere else. They'll see CPU_Main in dreams, imagine CPU_Main relocated or rebooted, rather than shut down the co-process.

These people find comfort in imagining their dead ones live on in others, and it's partly true, they live on in them, because they want to believe they're reincarnated elsewhere.

Even the Apple haters, are still running their Denigrate_Jobs processes, they too are part of the Jobs program. They too haven't shut that program down.

Anonymous Coward | about a year and a half ago | (#41197647)

Except that he is who people perceive him to be, so if CPU_Main is dead, then he is the statistical average of those fragments.

In life he was the statistical average of (CPU_Main + CPU_CoProcess1 + CPU_CoProcess2....CPU_CoProcess6000000000)

In death he's (0 + CPU_CoProcess1 + CPU_CoProcess2....CPU_CoProcess6000000000)

But its pretty damn similar to what he was in life, I doubt the image perceived of him was much like the real person, even when he lived.

shaitand (626655) | about a year and a half ago | (#41197695)

A person is nothing but a brain + nervous system which are just brain tendrils. The brain is a bunch of independent logic units responding to each others electrochemical signals and reorganizing based on them. A second brain is more of the same, there is a high speed link between them composed of light and smell. The consequence is that two brains are effectively one large brain. They are separated by that link much like the lobes of your personal pool of neurons so the neurons are going to have more of their pathways based on local input and even more so because interaction with the same pool of neurons might exist more or less frequently.

Effectively, you, and everyone you interact with are just individual neurons in a much much collective pool of neurons. If a single neuron in your brain dies the impact it had on other neurons does not, it will influence their reactions to stimuli to some extent forever after. The same is true of that larger brain. In a way, there has been a larger brain that has persisted since the beginning of mankind. It used to be separated and localized quite extensively but the pools that were towns have formed faster and faster connections and even the individual members form faster and more efficient connections to more and more people.

Saying someone lives on in those they've left behind isn't just a figure of speech. It is a literal fact.

What bothers always about the concept of reincarnation (with a carnal body, so not TFA), is that if you don't have any memories or experiences of your past lives, what is left, then? How do they make any impact? An explanation could be that the previous experiences shape life in some way that the person cannot sense.

wierd_w (1375923) | about a year and a half ago | (#41197733)

Ok, if Jobs is floating over his OLD OFFICE, that means he was incarnated as a hungry ghost!

See, in bhuddist cosmology, there are various gradients of existence. This world, our world, represents the crossroads between the celestial heavens, and the hellish naraka. (Those are plural. There are many of each.)

The important thing of note here, is that the priests say he was incarnated above his old office. This means here, on the mortal realm.

In the mortal realm, there are 3 potential kinds of incarnation: Human, Hungry ghost, and Animal.

Since he is incorporeal, and in the mortal realm, that means he is a hungry ghost. Hungry ghosts are called that, because they have big appetites, but lack any real means to sate them. They are a pitiable form of existence, but can also cause serious problems, such as hauntings.

That he would incarnate into a LOWER incarnation implies he had BAD karma, but not quite sufficient to send him to one of the naraka. (Though the burning flesh naraka might be appropriate if you ask me.)

So, if you work at apple, you should attempt to appease the late Jobs, by leaving offerings of unmarked bills, and the latest iDevice on his desk. Failing to do so will anger the hungry ghot, and there will be trouble. Burning incense may help as well. But not sandalwood. It's tacky.

The Buddhist claim is silly to say the least. What's really sad is the childish, iHating crybabys that just don't seem to want to stop kicking and screaming. You asshats hated Steve Jobs when he was alive, now it seems you hate him even more now that he's dead. You guys have fucking issues.

Steve Jobs stimulated his creativity by "Going to the Magic Kingdom" while tripping his balls off on acid, back in the 70's, when it was still OK for CEO's to trip their balls off on acid.

Nowadays, most CEO's just act like they should "get their lips away from the crack pipe!"

Um. No (0)

If there is any justice in the universe at all.
Steve is rotting in hell right now where he belongs.

Had the chance, money, people, tech and influence to change the world for the better in a HUGE way. Or at least technology for the better.

And instead went for max profits selling inferior tech locked down walled off shiny ithings in primary colors to iidiots for high margins and suing everyone they could. And being one of the biggest corporate douchebags on the planet.

A lifetime of being a douche. That better not get you a good reward in the afterlife.
