I'm sorry, but I can't help but smile with a bit of, *cough*.. See,
that sentence of yours reminds me of the purity tests that were so
popular in the 80's. Bet you would score perfect in the 1500 questions
purity test. ;-)

The readers here, most of us at least, have already lived long enough
to understand the I-Ching[1], thusly we rather be pragmatic than pure.

[1] When the Master reached his 80th brithday he was asked what he
wanted the most. Kung-tzu answered: "I would like to live 40 years
more. I began understanding the I-Ching 40 years ago and I know that I
need 40 years more to start to master it." Well, something like that.
I don't know where is my copy of the Analects these days. :-)
