OK, I'll try to make this less opaque than my other response.

When I read the root node, it smelled like karma whoring. I'm not saying that it was, but it came across that way. You wrapped up non-controversial statements and a good dose of congratulatory back-patting with a thin veneer of pseudo-Eastern philosophy. I neither found useful information about that philosophy or Perl. Indeed the attempts to derive a moral about Perl in a very literal way from each sentence detracted from my appreciation of the philosophy.

Furthermore upon seeing the philosophy quotes I saw that they could have been taken somewhere very interesting. For instance from the insights I tried to express in What you refuse to see, is your worst trap I can see how acting in accord with those principles would result in your being very effective in interpersonal relationships. That is something that could be very insightful and helpful.

Hence my attempt to express this feeling in a somewhat poetic matter.
