You should harmonize like this.
Intuit true and false, know what is hidden,
The large suppresses all, the small enters the microscopic.
There are chances for life and death, without reacting to changes.

I still haven't gotten over how much he laid at their feet and to think they said things like....
"We couldn't wait for him to shut up, so we could go back and train...."
And then decades of mistranslated and untranslated instructions all pointing the way.
Ya know, all that stuff is very revealing, but without an explanation within the proper context, it don't mean a thing and could very easily send people off on tangents that can totally skew what is really being said - IOW, everyone will filter it through their own levels of understand AND expectations as to what they want it to mean -
