attaining the zero mass state

... this cold weather makes me think that 98.6 is
a pretty nice temperature to be at

... like in the old Jack London tale of the
ignorant white prospector caught out in
negative 75 degrees cold of north Canada
wilderness...To Light a Fire

... the only way to truly get rid of the
misery of cold, is to give up the material
world, and relinquish your water-based body

... it's amazing that Lord Brahma could
even devise a self-replicating, water
and mud based, sentient being

... genius Brahma, pure genius

... so having our temperature run at 98.6
is not too much of a design constraint,
considering all of our other characteristics

... and of course, like everything else in
the material world, we are heat engines, so
we run optimally with a cooling temperature
around us

... but not too cold, 72 degrees Farenheit
is pretty good

... and not too hot either, lest we burn
out our enzymes

... so, we seek the Middle Way in regards
to temperature:
not too hot, not too cold, but just right
