Aw, for a second I thought that was a link to a source, I got so excited. Links to promising scientific info are like flytraps for engineering grads.

comment How to write to a famous author?
I agree that this is somewhat off-topic. Does not pertain to writing in any particular sense-- could just as easily be asked with regard to any profession by changing only a few words in the question. "How can I write to a famous director? Politician? Starfish breeder?"

comment How to tell a story with the least amount of writing?
I understand the idea at work here, but the principle it's predicated upon escapes me-- based on what logic or opinion polls are we declaring koans to be "certainly more difficult" than novels?

This answer confuses me so much. I know what a koan is but do not see the benefit in writing one or the difference from novelistic prose. I have clearly not passed the test.
