It may be argued that a 'closet' is the Christian equivalent of a
'meditation' room. Apparenlty, American closets were originally built
to close yourself to mediate (hence 'skeleton out of the closet').
The procedure t produce such conclusions is traditional. By ingesting british foodstuff have great consitpation for a fortnight.Insdert the funnel in teh correct positiona and have the expelled materials quickly posted on teh webpages.

We were referrring to the 'meditation rooms' mentioned in the link J. Krueger provided. They sounded rather obscene to me. I don't need a ROOM to 'mediate'. Note that the etymology of 'meditate' is totally unrelated to that of 'room'. -- In a message dated 8/4/2010 5:44:51 P.M., rpaul@xxxxxxxx writes notes the idioms involving 'closet', which I argued was the Christian equivalent of the Muslim 'meditation room'. "I'm not sure where the 'hence' comes from. Even if American closets were 'originally built for Cartesion purposes, the phrase is, surely, '[to have a] skeleton in the closet,' which roughly speaking means to have something unspoken but potentially ruinous or at least embarrassing if discovered, in one's or one's family's background. Its origin is English. http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/skeleton-in-the-closet.html Skeletons don't come out of the closet, but people do. OED[under entry for 'closet']: ...skeleton in the closet (or cupboard): a private or concealed trouble in one's house or circumstances, ever present, and ever liable to come into view: see SKELETON. d. to come out of the closet: to admit (something) openly, to cease to conceal, esp. one's homosexuality." Hear, hear. This, to confirm, also from the Etymological online: closet: "late 14c., from O.Fr. closet "small enclosure, private room," dim. of clos, from L. clausum "closed space," from neut. pp. of claudere "to shut" (see close (v.)). In Matt. vi:6 used to render L. cubiculum "bedchamber, bedroom," Gk. tamieion "chamber, inner chamber, secret room;" thus originally in English "a private room for study or prayer;" modern sense of "small side-room for storage" is first recorded 1610s. The adjective is from 1680s, "private, secluded;" meaning "secret, unknown" recorded from 1952, first of alcoholism, but by 1970s used principally of homosexuality; the phrase come out of the closet "admit something openly" first recorded 1963, and lent new meanings to the word out." ------ "Mediation rooms" are INDIVIDUAL. With a 13 story proposed building I assume that at least, let's check, 13 X 4 13 X 4 ------ 52 52 meditation rooms -- assuming four per story. ---- In general, people now do think it IS a bad idea, Park51, and incidentally, "Park51" is a politically correct euphemism. Apparently "Cordoba House" is semi-officially banned.
