People see patterns and rules everywhere.
But these patterns and rules are elusive. A pattern could be there and you could “see” it, but if you interpret the data in a different way or if you examine the context of your observations, you could “know” that there is no pattern and you could stop “seeing” it.
In the same way, one could say something “mystical” and prove it to be “correct”, in some specific way under very specific circumstances.
In a way, everything goes. Perhaps that is the whole meaning of Tao itself…
If you think about it, Logic is a human construct. The cosmos we experience is a phenomenal world. Reality (if a universal reality exists – because many things imply that every person actually formulates his own reality – see quantum mechanics) is the common denominator of all the phenomena. And the only common denominator is Consciousness. Tao by definition is illogical in its sayings. And perhaps this is what it is trying to do: Guide us to the beginning, to what now seems “illogical”…
Clap with one hand.
You could do it.
