Perhaps I misunderstand, but if you are saying that Life's secret
mystery has been completely revealed, unveiled, shown, known, etc., by
these books ... you are fooling yourself. This knowledge, as intricate
and complex as our minds love to assume it to be, is as partial as a
half eaten Oreo, and always will be. The Tao that can be told is not the
eternal Tao.

I know nothing. Knowledge obscures the Truth. It is a bias no matter how
else you qualify it. Truth is always beyond knowledge. I know nothing at
all. The fools will scratch their heads at my admission, but the wise
will understand. Those who think themselves wise will gloat, but they
too will be in error.  "Beyond, beyond, gone beyond."

No one in particular.
