Please let me rephrase then...
Thanks for the presentation of facts you conveyed.
They are really insightful and helpful, to me.
Actually...the expression 'release the metal arrow',( which I equate with the 'tempered steel jin' concept) had crossed my path recently and I was considering the technical validity of such a thing.
These types of subtle points are not always clearly visible to the student.
Louis, just for clarity sake, could you humor me then, and supply your opinion on the matter...I am not sure who is saying this is laughable, and why that would be.
At first thought I believed that it was a valid idea, then I saw how it might be laughable,now I am back to wondering if this could be viable...
I really need an explanation on that subject to be able to comprehend further.
I find this metaphor interesting and would like to know more.
