The fallacy of mind.

If there is mind, how can you know it?
Mind can know itself. Hello, can the sword cut itself?

Where is this mind?
Bodhidharma - Bring me your mind, I will pacify it.
Huike - Although I’ve sought it, I cannot find it.
You don't even know where it is, why still insist there is this mind!?

Rakan Keishin Zenji saw Hogen off to the gate. Noticing a big stone in the garden, he pointed to it and asked Hōgen, “You monks usually say the whole universe is just one mind. Just tell me, is this stone within the mind or outside the mind?”
“Within the mind,” Hōgen replied. “It will be awfully difficult for you to travel around with such a big stone inside of you!” the master retorted.
Hōgen was shocked by this remark and decided to stay at the monastery to study.

Intermezzo:
Can the sun ray be stored?
Yes, in the solar panel.
I will replace my light with solar panel tonight. May I see the same sun ray tonight. :tee:

Through nonconceptuality, he is immovable.
