Buddhist and Taoist Terminology Fantasy Football Laegue

The Buddhists beat us Taoists hands down in the Terminology Fantasy Football League. They have such great words for all useful ideas, states and feelings. I realise that Tao and Zen are just two fingers pointing at the same moon, but humour me here, I have a joke to tell.

Line up: Buddhist end, Flat-back four - Grasping, Aversion, Ignorance, Oblivion, with Enlightenment in goal. Down the Taoist end it's just Emptiness and Form, Yin and Yang, not really defending anything, with Nothingness in goal, and so we always lose. 

It's a good thing we invest in loss.
