That reminds me of a great story:

A Taoist priest gets on a boat, and asks the boatman, "Do you KNOW about the TAO?"
The boatman says, "No."  The Taoist says, "AH!  then you have missed out on half
a life!"

There is a storm, the boat is sinking.  The boatman says, "Do you know how to swim?"
The priest says, "No."  The boatman says, "AH.  then you have missed out on ALL of
a life"

What's the point?  there isn't one.
