Ancient Chinese sage Say Ing could not stand any noise.  He needed silence to muse, meditate, and contemplate.

Two stones outside Say Ing’s home started conversing.  It was a loud conversation for Say Ing, but a normal-volume conversation for the stones.  No matter how many times Say Ing asked the stones to talk quietly, the stones kept talking loudly because it was normal for them to talk loudly.

Say Ing’s pet canary did not like the loud conversation coming from the stones.  It started singing to try to drown out the noise.  Say Ing snapped!  He could not stand the noise coming from the stones and his canary.  Say Ing reached inside the cage, grabbed the canary and threw it at the stones killing them and the canary instantly.

In the ensuing silence Say Ing thought, “I just killed two stones with one bird.”


What religion are chipmunks?  Are there peanut and popcorn munks?  If so, are they the same religion as chipmunks?


Is this the best I can do when the voices in my head vibrate, without limit, somewhere else?
