Good Morning Byron. Thank you so much for bringing this great topic on writing Ethnography. Alan's presentation is very powerful. The video and how things is described, is such powerful. I would like to ask two questions:
1. Is Ethnography writing influenced by the Culture of People?
Yes of course . . .
2. During meditation can we meet ghost? Is everyone able to do it?
Thank you so much
Good morning. Thank you for this event! I have a doubt about “doubt.” I wish I could be more sure of the things I claim to know and think. But I also believe that doubt is what brought me here in the first place. I want to know how to deal with that! (I'm a PhD student at Umass Amherst)

Very powerful talk. Thank you so much. I leave for another meeting.
Thank you so much, have to zoom to another meeting

Erving Goffman wrote in his book Frame Analysis, that pheonomena like ghosts' realities, always have alternative natural science explanations. But clearly, they play roles in many persons perceptual processes.
I was going to ask Alan what relationship he thinks his method has to do with Buddhism. He mentioned in passing "longchenpa" and”pointing out" bvoth of which are terms in Tibetan Buddhist practice. Does he think of deconstruction as equivalent in wome way to some aspect of the goalsof Buddhism?
Thank you for this very imaginative, explorative ethnography and presentation. Made me rethink interpretations of many movies in other parts of the World.
