That the bodily frame came from incorporeity, and will return to the same, is what all men in common know, and what those who are on their way to (know) it need not strive for. This is what the multitudes of men discuss together. Those whose (knowledge) is complete do not discuss it;-- such discussion shows that their (knowledge) is not complete. Even the most clear-sighted do not meet (with the Tâo);-- it is better to be silent than to reason about it. The Tâo cannot be heard with the ears;-- it is better to shut the ears than to try and hear it. This is what is called the Great Attainment

不形之形,形之不形,是人之所同知也,非将至之所务也,此众人之所同论也。彼至则不论,论则不至;明见无值,辩不若默;道不可闻,闻不若塞:此之谓大得。
