Verse 47 Going Beyond
We can understand the world as it is
without leaving our home.
We can understand the world as it might be
without peering dreamily out our window.
The further we go,
the less we know.
Wise people understand the 10,000 things
without going to each one.
They know them without having to look at each one,
and they transform all without acting on each one.
