I would say there are people "not of this world."  It divides the ethically
under-motivated from the ethically hyper-motivated.  People want to
believe in such, because they do not believe in themselves.  To be a
Buddha is everyone's potential.

Some humans wish clues as to how to awaken.  Some wish not to be bothered.

Now you say something I can wholly agree with.  But I add it is immense
privilege to be such.  There may be secret in the human being the universe
