I am not a young person. I’m 55 years old. I have studied tai chi for over 10 years. I have read Jung and am professionally trained as a life coach. In other words, despite my pop culture references, I know what the fuck I’m talking about. And other than attacking me in the vaguest way possible, which is what someone does when they don’t actually have a substantive rebuttal, you have said nothing.

This story is only about emotions and combat in the most superficial way, and if your teacher betrays you, you just might have to kill them. You are focused on the least important part. Having access to your entire psyche and not just your intellect will always serve everyone better than worshipping at the altar of cognition alone. That is the point of the story and why it has the title that it does.
