Zen II

Apparently the whole sound-of-one-hand-clapping question is really a technique for opening the pupil's eyes to the all-pervasive nature of analytical, dualist reasoning. Anyone responding with a sensible answer is asking for a whack with the satori stick. This probably means that any attempt to test the question empirically with SCIENCE (by messing around with the subject's body image so he cannot find his left arm, having confused it with a wad of gum under the table) is also missing the point, and OW OW OW OW

I'm sure the effects will wear off soon and Merc will have his arm back in time for Beef'n'Burgundy night.

Some hands, of course, suffer no ill effects and establish satisfying careers of their own
