Actually Sarlo did not recognise you, though it might flatter my detective skills to think so. When you first appeared as DZ on the RebSpirit list, Sadananda made a perfunctory effort to "unmask" you but let it go. I took your self-presentation at face value.

My curiosity about such things is not great. I have not unmasked myself yet so am not much interested in doing so for others. The exception, where my radar is more alert, is for the N0xious One, and his ilk, negos who would like to sabotage Osho's work/legacy/vision/whatever. You were clearly not in that camp so your "identity" was not my business, and in fact i didn't even doubt your story about your name.

I prefer it when people come as themselves but if they are just playing at being someone else, without some nefarious purpose, then they can play. 

The question of whether anyone liked you better as DZ simply because they had no Pradhira baggage to put on her is interesting, but unanswerable. But if you had fun doing it then at least from that pov it was worth it. I had something to say about your apparent attachment to a "national identity," but did not press it when you rejected it. If i had known it was you, i doubt that, in my current mode, i would have done it any differently.

I´ d like to tell you a story of how we in the Balkans kill rats. We have a method of transforming the rat into a wolf; we make a wolf rat. But before I explain this method I´ d like to tell you something about rats themselves. First of all, rats consume large quantities of food, sometimes double the weight of their own bodies. Their front teeth never stop growing and they have to be ground constantly otherwise they risk suffocation.

Rats take good care of their families. They will never kill or eat the members of their own family. They are extremely intelligent. Einstein once said: “If the rat were 20 kilos heavier it would definitely be the ruler of the world”. If you put a plate of food and poison in front of a hole the rat will sense it and not eat.

The Method

To catch the rats you have to fill all their holes with water, leaving only one open. In this way you can catch 35 to 45 rats. You have to make sure that you choose only the males. You put them in a cage and give them only water to drink. After a while they start to get hungry, their front teeth start growing and even though, normally, they would not kill members of their own tribe, since they risk suffocation they are forced to kill the weak one in the cage. And then another weak one, another weak one, and another weak one. They go on until only the strongest and most superior rat of them all is left in the cage. Now the rat catcher continues to give the rat water. At this point timing is extremely important. The rat´ s teeth are growing. When the rat catcher sees that there is only half an hour left before the rat will suffocate he opens the cage, takes a knife, removes the rat´ s eyes and lets it go. Now the rat is nervous, outraged and in a panic. He faces his own death and runs into the rat hole and kills every rat that comes his way. Until he comes across the rat who is stronger and superior to him. This rat kills him.

This is how we make the wolf rat in the Balkans.
