“The Basic Blind Spot”

The Chinese philosopher Ch’eng Ming-Tao (1032-1085) wrote:

It is inherent in men that each has his blind spot, which prevents him from according with the Way.[1]

            I am led to believe that the basic blind spot is the birthing trauma, and that later traumas are then overlaid on it. Each is thus afflicted in his own way. But this is his Way – for him to have precisely this particular blind spot.
