vertical line With great power comes great responsibility; but with absolute power, your mind becomes clamped with intolerable pressure from every possible angle, until it finally spits itself inside out like a six-dimensional eyeball made of white fire. At that point, "absolute responsibility" reveals itself as the Zen paradox of absolutely no responsibility or accountability whatsoever.

vertical line Why have I ask the question?

Since the Mumonkan (the collection of koans literaturely) begin with "Has the dog the Buddha nature?"

then may be we can comprehend every thought in this manner.like to go up on (something)

anything to add on?
