Not to be reached by traveling is the end of the world,
Yet there is no release from sorrow
Unless you reach the end of the world.

The one who is wise and lives... continue...

WHEN A FRAGMENTED MAN...
Someone once said something like this:

"When a whole man just hears what is said, he immediately captures it in a flash of lightning, then he walks on and does his creative work.

When a half-n-half man hears what is said, he seems to understand it but actually he does not. He keeps reasoning, arguing, asking and jumping into any conclusion which might come from his memory. With him, there is nothing new. He just bothers himself and others.

When a fragmented man hears what is talked about, the more he listens to it, the more he gets confused and goes into broken pieces of his thoughts, then he askes and asks with frivolous questions or takes it as a joke and laughs as loud as he could. But if he did not laugh at it, how could it be called the way of fragmented men?"
