Posted:1) It sounds like a few of my audiences (some have been stupified into silence, some have been just stupid)2) In my case, **roll** back down3) I woud say yeah. A man bitching at me still makes a sound even though I pay no attention so why wouldn't the tree?

Posted:Anyone ever though of putting a sound recorder in the forest when the tree falls? Technically, nobody would the "there" to here it would they? They would be somewhere else when they were hearing it.

Posted:Here is a good question. Does a one legged duck swim in circles? If it stands for progress, why is it called congress? What happenes when an unstopable force meets an immoveable object?Oh and by the way weather or not someone is there to hear the tree falling, it does make a noise. Just because we did not hear it does not mean it did not make a noise. Would you actually believe that a 200 foot tall tree fell silently in the night?;)

Posted:(ex was a soundman, so I get sound speeches all the time.)Sound is always there. The tree makes a vibration, and this vibratuion is sound. whether we're there or not is irrelevant(sp).vibrations will cause sounds, always.hehe

Posted:wow !look at all these answers that came while i was sleeping at home like a baby (well, like a drunk baby cause I had a long dinner, but still ) ... lolFirst of all, Sabine, I love your question, definitely most poetic one !!!!Flash, as always, your ironical feminist humour makes me burst out laughing... But it is a relevant question.. my answer would be "most probably still wrong, but at least it would be relaxing for us women..."Katinca... eeer, until now, I was still not making the difference between US jelly and jello... mmm...Bhawk, too bad I am allergic to cats otherwise, I'd give that one a try cause it should be visually interesting

I was going to start a thread on how many koans every one konw... but i did a search like a good little boy, and I found this...

so, list any koans you know, and any stories of enlightenement.

this is a favourite of mine ubbrollsmile

"anzen and Ekido were once travelling together down a muddy road. A heavy rain was still falling.

Coming around the bend, they met a lovely girl in a silk kimono and sash, unable to cross the intersection.

"Come on girl", said Tanzen at once. Lifting her in his arms, he carried her over the mud.

Ekido did not speak again until that night when they reached a lodging temple. Then he no longer could restrain himself. "We monks don't go near females," he told Tanzen, "especially not young and lovely ones. It is dangerous. Why did you do that?"

"I left the girl there," said Tanzen. "Are you still carrying her?"
