Socrates would challenge Dan's "mind" stating that the "brain existed but the mind did not." Challenging him to introspect himself through meditation "Silence is the warrior's art - and meditation is his sword.

It is the central weapon that you will use to cut through your illusions.

But understand this: the sword's usefulness depends upon the swordsman. You don't yet know how to use the weapon, so it can become dangerous, deluding, or a useless tool in your hands."

Wow! How many young or new martial artists fit that description? Many, I did when I first started and still do in many ways.


I have written about 'martial delusion' many times in the past Jim.

Thanks, Van

I am looking forward to the movie. Despite Nolte's eccentricities I like most of his roles.

I once had lunch with him quite unexpectedly in LV during a fraud investigation I was handling for the insurance company.

He was at a conference my target was running and we had a buffet lunch, all the seats were taken & nobody was sitting w/ him. So I asked and we had a nice conversation.

Too bad he relapsed in his alcohol problem, but he cleaned up for this movie.
