    Description:
       This from Emerson essay on Experience: discussing the Chinese Mencius in conversation w/traveler; the commentary associating various man-"identified" religious and spiritual explanations and their historical and present inablity to fully improve human understanding and condition; man's common, energizing link to all...things that make me go hmmmm

    "I fully understand Language (hidden knowledge)," he said, "and nourish well my vast-flowing vigor." -
    "I beg to ask, what you call vast-flowing vigor?" said his companion.
    "The explanation," replied Mencius, "is difficult. This vigor is Supremely great, and in the Highest degree unbending. Nourish "It" correctly, and do "It" no injury, and "It" will fill the vacancy between Heaven and Earth. This vigor accords with and assists justice and reason and leaves no hunger."
    From Emerson Poems & Essays 1921

      it's interesting, wisdom comes from experience. Experience is what you get when you don't get what you wanted. you don't get what you want without proper knowledge, but knowledge is nothing without application. Anyways, as usual an abstract piece. This one is an estranged read. I had to go through it a couple times, and i'm not a complete idiot(some pieces are still missing). i do in the sum of it all get a message that is conveyed through it all.
