( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I happened to like the post more than some of the others around here. *grin* Many of them seemed to miss the Tao Teh Ching references.

That being said, you seem to miss the point of Wu-wei. You cannot, by action, give or make yourself into these things you are talking about. They must come from your inate nature. I would have writtent this differently, such as.

I have no style. How then, can you perceve my pattern?
I have no knowledge. I see things as they are.
I have no skills. And yet, there is nothing I cannot do.
I have no understanding. And yet, I know everything true nature.
I have no strength. But none can defeat me.
I have no power. But like water, none can harm me.
I have no future. I live for the moment.
I have no past. For I come from nowhere.
I have no thirst for knowledge. For there is nothing to learn.

Something a bit more like that would have been more true to the TTC or Zen. The point is just to be who you are, and not try to force yourself into something by "making" yourself into it. This is about as OT as I have get around here, other than that I think that sort of philosophy maps very well on to coding.

Thanks for the poem spectre.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
