OK, but I think the meditation sessions were added post-Nimoy.  I think they took the notion that Vulcans were ruminative and liked robes, and then made them quasi-Buddhists on later programmes.

incidentally, what i'm hearing from those who don't care much about Japanimation or the social justice of racial representation is that the ScarJo Shell Ghost is "pretty cool, trippy too!"

I reckon that's the difference between actually being one and merely claiming to be one.

this might also be a bit of a post-Nimoy extrapolation-exaggeration.

Spock said "Vulcan, like Earth, had its aggressive, colonizing period; savage, even by Earth standards. And if the Romulans retained this martial philosophy, then weakness is something we dare not show."

Spock is saying the Vulcans used to be like the savage Spanish; but on like the Scott Bakula Show, they take this to mean Vulcans become psychos and rapists when lacking logic and er, star yoga. Tho this invention isn't quite 100% unfounded, considering the violence of, say, the koon-ut-kal-if-fee ritual.
