What is does your original face look like? The Zen koan asks of us, to forget our mind and body and go beyond the concepts of it. As we limit ourselves to concepts we lose our ability to interact with the world as it is. We subsidize a subject image of how we see it – reality – instead of how it actually is. What is your image of reality? How does the slight features of facial recognition relate to what you actually are?

I realize that the koan asks much more than this of us…but we can always throw out a little interpretive concept to attempt to battle the construct and create a progressive understanding of consciousness and our role in it…
