In one important aspect, the problem with Buddhist Meditation is strangely similar to Christian Creationism. (Recorded while sick with a bad fever [發燒], BTW, so my voice is a bit creaky.)

If you've got the patience to read more:
"...we must not forget that the English word meditation denotes a European concept, not a Buddhist one. We find the term in the popular translation of the "Meditations" of Marcus Aurelius ([馬爾庫斯·奧列里烏斯] 121--180 A.D.) —scil., a title that is also translated as "private thoughts" or simply as "notes to myself". This shows the range of meanings that the English term has encompassed in recent centuries: it has been used to denote everything from Christian prayer to solipsistic thinking, and includes autobiographical reflections in-between."
