Well, i was fooling around with linux a couple of months ago, and I did a couple of "Tao" like texts... Once a programmer came to a Master, sequious of learning. "Master", he said, "I have an idea of great avail, that will requilish all other game ever made. I want to code it, could you help me?". He then gave a long and lenghtful insight in how it would be. The Master looked into the programmer and replied "Not even I can code sutch a thing." The student became confused "But aren't you a master of the Tao?" The Master concluded "A Game is in his origin, a Game. The Tao of Saturn shows us no way to make Ideas, only Games. If you want to make an Idea, you must find you own Tao." and left the novice. -- And once the Master said : "The one that codes briefly, thinks lenghtly, and reads carefully, yes, he has a chance to understand the Tao." -- And once the Master said : "Fear not the SH-2 double CPU. The path to Tao does not lie in learning assembly or knowing the Saturn inside out. The path to Tao leads you by your own resources." -- "The Tao is in every game console" claimed the master. "Is the Tao in a GameBoy?" one apprenice asked. "It is," came the reply. "Is the Tao in a PS2?" continued the apprentice. "Yes, even in a PS2" said the master. "And is the Tao in the 32x for Genesis?" The master coughed and shifted his position slightly. "The lesson is over for today," he said. -- The master looked at their students and claimed "Forget not the Tao of Programming. Altough the Game demands different treatment, the Tao of Programming and the Tao of Saturn are the same. However, you will become a master of Saturn and yet, you will not be a Master of the Tao of Programming - So it is the fate of the creators of Games, to become famous before being good coders." -- An doubtfull student came to the master "Master, how can Burning Rangers be a sample of Tao. It has bad framerate and defrauded expectatives..." "Ah! More than just the Game, sometimes the Tao calls for the Program. Sonic Team gathered, worked and produced a Program that transcends the own machine. You cannot blame the Program, just the expectatives. It could not have been created any other way" ...Anyone care to add anything else?
