Even if rational analysis is possible (it usually is, for ours is not an irrational philosophy ... even if its logic is a different logic from the typical Western kind) ... the experience will have suddenly changed, or been subtly lost.

So cease the intellectual work of studying sayings and chasing words. [Nishijima]

Therefore, put aside the intellectual practice of investigating words and chasing phrases, [SZTP]
