Furthermore, [this principle] cannot be comprehended through meanings, transmitted by words, discussed in texts, or passed on through consciousness. . [Cases] such as "the oak tree in the courtyard," "three pounds of flax," and "a dried piece of shit," which are impenetrable to the intellect, were devised and given to people to bore into. This is like having to penetrate a silver mountain or a steel wall. Even if there are bright-eyed people who can turn the tables and usurp [some meaning from] the written expressions, their every comment in harmony, like the tracks of a bird in the sky or the traces of moon in the watery depths, if they wander self-indulgently every which way on the thousand roads and ten thousand wheel ruts, they are without attainment and their opinions are fraudulent.
The process of replication, however, does not simply add a second awakened voice (that of the commenting master) to the voice of the ancient patriarch who is featured in the root case. Rather it creates a hierarchy of authoritative voices in which the level of commentarial discourse is privileged over that of the root case. Thus, for example, in Master Hsueh-t'ou's Verses on One Hundred Old Cases, each of Hsueh-t'ou's verse comments not only provides an interpretation of the meaning of a particular root case, it also puts Hsueh-t'ou himself in the position of demonstrating his status and insight as a Ch'an master—an arbiter of awakening and discourse on 34 THE K O A N awakening.
Consider, for example, the sixty-third case of the Blue Cliff Collection, which takes as its root case the story of Nan-ch'iian and the cat. This story, we saw, appears in Nan-ch'iian's biography in the Ching-te Record, but versions are also found in a number of other Ch'an records, so there is no way of knowing for certain what Hsueh-t'ou's source was when he selected it for inclusion in his Verses on One Hundred Old Cases. The root case and Hsueh-t'ou's verse commentary read as follows: Raised (phti): At Nan-ch'iian [monastery] one day, the [monks of the] east and west halls were arguing over a cat.
