I would probably have to replace my conker. After conkering the entire world my conker would probably be pretty knackered (unless I cheated and used a brown painted ball bearing). The problem is that I would have to wait until autumn for more conkers to come along, so I may have to have a bit of a wait for a while.

Same thing you do after mowing the lawn. Sit down and have a beer.

You sit under the Bodhi tree.

One of my books on Buddhism says that by sitting meditation one becomes a sitting Buddha. That is to say, you a not likely to be enlightened if you put an emphasis on the sitting itself, or where you sit.

smallminded people, all of you.
Which is why you'll ultimately fall to my evil genius.

Find other worlds to conquer.

That the emphasis of the message was on the act of sitting or on the place of sitting seems to be an interpretation of the one who is conquered by the mayas of known world.

That the essence of the message was to conquer oneself as the next step could be an interpretation for the one who has already conquered the known world and is willing to go beyond.
