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.

If your question here is at all indicative of your general writing style, you might want to continue a bit further down the path of learning English before you start trying to "hit everyone's interest."
