Yan: Our previous chat about outsider translations... my mind keeps thinking of the words given... outsiders' words about people having supernatural powers... the people somehow feeling it to be rational to claim that following a book's words, can, somehow, enable a person to transform himself, and attain magical powers to also transform heaven, earth, and other people. It troubles me, that the ancient words have been twisted into an appearance of primitive superstitions, and magic...

Alo: Translations... mirror of heart...

Yan: Accepted... but, to me, it seems to be, astonishing in a way, that the east translations have survived without any known person pointing to the errors... and much worse, modern translations follow a similar wording as the old translations... it appears, that the east people, are not learning...

Alo: But, the things that our people do, do indeed appear to be as magic to outsiders...

De: Touch... heal...

Alo: Yes, such a tiny little thing... so easy... so obvious... but, to outsiders... magic.

Yan: That is odd... kind of funny too... we do it, as-if, second-nature... we learned by touching, that touching has specific responses... we then merely alter the responses to do what the responses are able to do... so easy, so obvious... but the outsiders, for some reason, they are unable to do similar... the outsiders know that rubbing a sore spot, helps alleviate the pain... outsiders know that rubbing a swollen injury, helps alleviate the swelling by increasing circulation... but outsiders, for whatever reason, cannot see, nor reason, what they do...

Jun: Not feel... not smell... not know...

Yan: Agreed, but, I wish that it was not so...

Alo: But simply having a memory of youth, is often interpreted by outsiders as being a supernatural power... whole systems of belief have been created around simple individuals who did simple things... just not simple to the people... all people choose choices and behaviors, all based upon memories of youth... all based upon memories of before birth... all living creatures do similar... all living adult humans, are, old fetuses... memories remain, until death... but, since outsiders are unaware of their own thoughts, then they believe a knowing of one's own mind, must be, supernatural...

Yan: I helped Jun... her ankle, injured... red, swollen, very painful to the top of her leg... within a few seconds the pain began to ebb... in less than five minutes the pain was gone, no swelling left, and only one little red spot remained, which disappeared by the next day... so little effort to heal... not even require touch... so easy, so simple, but the outsiders, they cannot do it...

Alo: Can also heal many things, like infections and eye cataracts... outsiders worship people who do similar...

Yan: Yes, they do... and that causes me to remain very cautious... not let outsiders see... the people's reactions, would be negative...

Alo: Agreed... hunger... they would flock around you, whining... palm out... wanting you to heal them... wanting you to sacrifice your life for them... outsiders, huge hunger... insatiable...



Yan: At one time, for years our people did offer the knowledge... no one wanted it for the purpose of helping people... everyone wanted it, for themselves... to make money, to become famous... greed, selfishness, hunger for self... not one outsider offered to help anyone else... literally no one wanted to help other people...

Alo: And look at what happened... the people who were told the knowledge, they refused to use the knowledge for good... the people misused the knowledge, and caused themselves great harm... so many children, and others, suffer, because of the people's hunger for self...

Yan: Yes... healing, is giving... outward... but, selfish souls, do not give... direction is inward... the effect, backfired... became negative...

Alo: The people now know that some people can heal, but, since the outsiders cannot do it themselves, then they believe that healing is a supernatural power...

Yan: So primitive... but can be a favorable innocence also... stories of remote people, seeing an airplane for the first time... the people thought it was a god or something... similar for photographs when new... similar for voice recorders... similar for radios, of hearing a person's voice from miles away... new things to people, are as supernatural... but the same things, to other people, are common, easy to understand... not magic...

Alo: It is true, that many outsiders think of the ancients as having held supernatural powers... the east translations prove it to be so... also prove that the translators themselves had no ability to do what is easy...

Yan: But it so deeply troubles me... there, a beehive... look at the shapes... obvious to us... we feel the shapes... apparently the bees do also... bees know where home is... similar shapes, everywhere, all over the world... Nature is of shapes, curves, of form... knowledge is spoken of throughout Nature... no great intelligence needed, simply look, feel, and smell... it is all there, open for everyone to see and to learn from...

Jun: Not feel... not smell... not know...

Yan: Ha! Yes! Again same words! Same reason! Outsiders cannot feel, nor smell... cannot know... do not, so much as, know curves...

Alo: I once enjoyed sitting by a barrel cactus, pleased and happy, while thinking about the beautiful cactus flower... I silently described the scents to myself... comparing the aromas to the aromas of other flowers... such a wonderful experience... variances of colors... bright glow of radiances... so many descriptions, an almost eternity of possible descriptions... but, within the outsiders' books, there is no mention of the aroma of a cactus flower... encyclopedias, no mention of any sensory perception... I saw that, long ago, as a small child... the outsiders, they write what they know... do not write what they do not know... they do not know feel and smell, nor curves...

Yan: And there, precisely there, to heal, requires the ability to feel and to know what to heal... sequence, is curves first... ha! Of course!

Alo: It is a little funny to us, from our perspective, but yes, I agree... cannot aim an arrow's curve correctly, if blind... cannot aim healing's curve correctly, if numb... cannot shoot arrow straight, if no heart to care... cannot shoot healing straight, if no heart to care... care for other people, first... feel, next...

Yan: So then, apparently, it would indeed appear supernatural to outsiders... and, then, also, I guess it stands to reason, that, outsiders tend to think most everything is supernatural...

Alo: Yes, I share a similar opinion...

De: Chidao... love... beauty... magic...

Alo: Yes... outsiders have indeed said that also... not feel... not know curve... believe, magic... say, magic...
