Post Parables, Allegories, Fables, Koans Anon 04/30/2020 (Thu) 19:51:55 No.531
When my mind is troubled, I make a little story in my head to simplify my situation. When I share them with others, I never explicitly state the moral so they can take away their own. It's a very comfy thing for me, it's how I express myself like some people do with poetry or doodles. I think if more people made a habit or practice of it the world would be a comfier place. If any of you do something similar, or would like to try it, I'd love to hear what you have to say. Here's a little story I've been rolling around in my skull for a few years now: A long time ago, a man built a brick wall in a wild field. Those who walked past it would often say, "look at this great symbol of order in a disorderly world!" Many years passed, and the wall crumbled to a scarcely recognizable pile of rubble. Passerby would shake their heads and frown at the sight. "No matter how men may labor to assemble some comforting order, nature will work ten times as hard for ten times as long to return it to disorder. How tragic!" As the wall finally turned to dust, the earth sighed. How nice it felt to become that much more neat and round.
>>531 It might have been a while since you made this post but I have to say that that's a neat story Anon.
Hacker Koans became a source of educational humor among programmers: >A student was playing a handheld video game during a class. >The teacher called on the student and asked him what he was doing. The student replied that he was trying to master the game. >The teacher said, "There exists a state in which you will not attempt to master the game, and the game will not attempt to master you." >The student asked, "What is this state?" >The teacher said, "Give me your video game, and I will show you." >The student gave him the game, and the teacher threw it to the ground, breaking it into pieces. The student was enlightened.
