  4. "What if there were no hypothetical questions?"

    A bit like a zen koan - perhaps it could really be used like that.

    Now that I understand WHAT koans are, they remain, of course, unclear. :)

    "The master is not looking for a specific answer but for evidence that the disciple has grasped the state of mind expressed by the kōan itself."

    I'm struggling with the needed state of mind - it feels close.
