I like this idea, only I think it should be run by the government.

The Buddha of Ultimate Concentration is
like every other statue of Buddha in
initial appearance. He sits serenely in a
special place in your home with his eyes
cast down, but if you look at him
you will see that he has one important
feature that no other similar effigy
This Buddha has eyes that can blink,
because hidden inside his head is a
mechanism, connected to a randomising
processor. The processor can be set from
minimum, through moderate, to
levels of concentration.
Once set, all that you need do is to stare
your Buddha's inscrutably perfect visage,
in a state of perfectly mindful
concentration, watching and waiting for
him to blink. Blinking is a very rapid and
rare event, so your concentration must
total and complete.
About once a year your Buddha of
Concentration will blink twice in
succession, and some special editions
have also been programmed to wink one
eye at a time.
||Hey, did Buddha wink at me?
||Well, since this would be the direct opposite of the Buddhist idea of meditation, where you have to concentrate on the meditation, and not concentrate on external images, and turns the whole thing upside down, I have no other choice but to bun this idea for the innovation.
||Just remember the saying, "A watched Buddha never blinks".
||Don't blink, you'll miss it!
||(sits, staring into Buddha's eyes, trying to determine whether [21Quest] is a believer, which will then determine whether this is a great idea)
||you forgot your bone [bigsleep] - here,
I'll throw it for you to fetch
