We are in a monotomy of bullshit. 
This is where shit is created every day. 

In life, according to zen master Soho Takuan back in the hoohas (thats like 400 years ago), shit came at you like a blades of katana. Right and Left. 
So, the buddhist monk wrote a letter to the head sword-master of Yagyu clan, that, shit comes at you, in life, like blades of katanas. Right and Left. 

That was when it was first written in history, that shit came like blades. 

There goes life. 

So, everyday, under a conscious mind, we are given a chance and a choice to decipher and make your decision, to what-to-do in life. 

When a blade comes at you, are you going to sway? Strike back? Cut-through?

The Japanese culture nourished by Zen (or Buddhism, as Zen is Buddhism) then came back with an answer. 

“Mu-tou” they called it, and it meant “No-sword”. 
You catch your slicing sword coming at you, with your bare-hand. There are techniques to steal the sword, break the sword and even to throw your opponent to the ground.

The zenith of sword fighting was to stop killing. 

If we are in a time when bullshit is created for us everyday instead of natural incidents, then we are but forced to abandon our weapons. 

I wonder how many men mr. Yagyu had sliced to achieve the “mu-tou” philosophy, but since its been done, we already have it in our hand.
