293. "Transform Your Fear Into a Question:" The Elephant and the Oak Tree Associated Poem

This poem explores the psychological underpinnings of scientific practice. "Transform your fear into a question" is a primary theme of "The Elephant and the Oak Tree," which is a story I am currently writing. Now reading the poem again (after a year-or-so), I have come to realize how the poem describes Tariel's "free-and-easy-wanderer" mentality, which is derived from Eastern philosophy (I don't know anything else more specifically).
