What is Love?: An Opinion

Chuang Zi was an influential Chinese philosopher who lived during the 4th century BCE. When his wife died, initially he felt sadness. Then he sat on a rock and meditated on the changes of qi and realized that death is nothing but a transformation (a dispersal) of qi the same way that birth is a transformation (aggregation) of qi. At that, his sadness dissipated and he felt joy. His followers found this story philosophically uplifting and the source of great wisdom. But we would say he is being incredibly callous and insensitive, that he has a big problem in not acknowledging his grief and that he is likely to get cancer as a result of his emotional emptiness/stagnation. Same patient, different prognosis from the Eastern and Western acupuncturist.
