A novice was once curious about the nature of the Edit Count. He approached the Zen master and asked, "Zen master, what is the nature of the Edit Count?"

to the wide garden of knowledge,
The deep rock of our past,
in which we must delve
The well of our future,
The clear water

in bright places,
tended by many hands,
And the broad fall of sunshine,
warming our first steps
how much we do not know.
