The teacher had just returned from a long journey traveling across lava fields and volcano ridges by foot.
Student: How was your trip? Did you see the mountains above the stars?
Teacher: I went swimming. The stars reflected in the ocean.
Student: Ah, so they are one?
Teacher: No, stars sparkle and the ocean is wet!
Student: So, is this about having an experience or seeing through all experience?
Teacher: Why are you here?
I wish I could say the student had a great realization at this point. But the conversation carried off as usual.
