  1. A koan may result in satori or it may not.
    It is a puzzle with seeming paradoxes.
    It’s answer lies not in the subjective mind of
    the prospective solver.
    Satori is sudden enlightenment where the solution
    becomes apparent to the solver without the
    partition of the subjective mind.
    The classic example of a koan in western experience
    is:
    “What is the sound of one handing clapping”
