Zen USA 1972 Wilson, Gahan. "[a spot] " in Again, Dangerous Visions (Harlan Ellison, ed.) Garden City, NY: Doubleday (1972); pg. 402. [The title of the story is actually not any written characters, but a black spot. The entire story is about a black spot that grows until it takes over the pages of the story. Very odd. The author is a cartoonist.] Afterword by author: "...Harlan Ellison has asked me to expand this Afterword three times, now... The first time I tried to palm him off with a brief, Zennish comment, witty yet profound. It went right over his head. "
Zen USA 1978 King, Stephen. The Stand. Garden City, NY: Doubleday (1978); pg. 426. "'There used to be a book my mom had, she got it from her grandmother or something. In His Steps, that was the name of it. And there were all these little stories about guys with horrible problems. Ethical problems, most of them. And the guy who wrote the book said that to solve the problems, all you had to do was ask, 'What would Jesus do?' It always cleared the trouble right up. You know what I think? It's a Zen question, not really a question at all but a way to clear your mind, like saying Om and looking at the tip of your nose.' "
Zen USA 1981 Simmons, Dan. Carrion Comfort. New York: Warner Books (1990; c. 1989); pg. 743. "...when he crossed a small, ornamental bridge, turned left through a miniature Zen garden, and came across Willi sitting on a long white bench... "

Sometimes I fear I am as poor a priest as you claim to have been a student of Zen.' "

Zen USA 1993 Simmons, Dan. The Hollow Man. New York: Bantam (1993); pg. 126. "Soul Dad's own philosophy was beyond words and images. It was something closer to Zen or to the elegant nonsense of nonlinear mathematics than to anything else Bremen had ever encountered. "

Zen USA 2020 Dick, Philip K. & Roger Zelazny. Deus Irae. Garden City, NY: Doubleday (1976); pg. 153. "The noble ideal, caritas, passes from the world. If we kill to prevent this, though, we betray it. It gets Zen-like here: Do nothing and the destroyer moves. Do something and you destroy it yourself. Yet you are charge to preserve it. How? The answer is supposed to be that it is a divine law and will out anyhow. I crack the koan simultaneously with an act of giving up on it. Then I am granted insight into its meaning. Or, in Christian terms, my will is empowered upon an especially trying occasion and I am granted an extraordinary measure of grace. "

" [Bradbury's first reference here, to 'Baptist / Unitarian' describes himself: He was raised as a Baptist and later become a Unitarian.

This is a Zen paradox, because from a logical standpoint Mary ought to have been the final straw that utterly destroyed Gino. It makes you rethink the entire role of adversity in human life...' "

Zen world 1967 Chayefsky, Paddy. Altered States. New York: Harper & Row (1978); pg. 43. "'...But it's still a renunciatory technique to achieve a predetermined trancelike state, which the Zen people call an isness, a very pure narcissism, Freud's oceanic feeling. What dignifies the yogic practice is that the belief system itself not truly religious. There is no Buddhist god per se. It is the self, the individual Mind, that contains immortality and ultimate truth--'

'What the hell's not metaphysical about that?' shouted Emily... 'You've simply replaced God with the Original Self.' " [More.]

Zen world 1975 Shea, Robert & Robert Anton Wilson. Illuminatus, Vol. III: Leviathan. New York: Dell (1975); pg. 22. Pg. 22: "'Remember what I told you about the goose in the bottle.'

That was a simple riddle used by Zen Masters in the training of monks, Joe remembered. You take a newborn gosling and slip it through the neck of a bottle. Month after month you keep it there and feed it, until it is a full-grown goose and can no longer be passed through the bottle's neck. The question is: Without breaking the bottle, how do you get the goose out?

Neither riddle seemed to shed much light on the other. "

Pg. 36: "'...When I figured out how you get the goose out of the bottle in the Zen riddle--you do nothing and wait for the goose to peck its way out, just like a chick pecks its way out of an egg--I realized 'Do what thou wilt' becomes 'the whole of the law' by a mathematical process...' "

" 'All statements that contain the word God are false.'

"Instantly, his least-favorite discipline [sic], Somasiri, replied:

" 'The sentence I am now speaking contains the word God. I fail to see, oh Noble Master, how that simple statement can be false.'

"Devadasa considered the matter for several Poyas. Then he answered, this time with apparent satisfaction:

" 'Only statements that do not contain the word God can be true.'

"After a [very brief] pause, Somasiri replied:

" 'If this statement applies to itself, oh Venerable One, it cannot be true, because it contains the word God. But if it is not true--'

"At this point, Devadasa broke his begging bowl upon Somasiri's head, and should therefore be honored as the true founder of Zen. "

as yet undiscovered.

Zen world 1987 Zelazny, Roger. Sign of Chaos. New York: Arbor House (1987); pg. 3. "Well. . . . It had all startled when I'd shaken my own hand. No. Wrong.

Pg. 28: "...she walked off the bridge and into the heart of the Zen garden.

Fortunato was waiting on a stone bench set artistically before a small pagoda. The gravel of the path crunched beneath her feet, but the ace continued to read, not deigning to acknowledge her arrival... " [More.]

I promised myself before I left that I would not turn into one of these astronaut-mystics who find being beyond the envelope of atmosphere and gravity a religious revelation, but it would be very easy to succumb to a Zen state of disconnectedness with worldly things.

" [In this passage, 'zen' is used by a non-Buddhist as an adjective for a mental state, showing that Anderson envisions the word passing into popular parlance somewhat disassociated from any sectarian sense. The year is estimated.]

In your mind's memory-section there is a Zen story about the greatest swordsman in Japan. Two men challenge him.. They agree to row out to a small island and fight there. The greatest swordsman in Japan, being a student of Zen, sees to it that he is last to leave the boat. The moment the others have leaped out onto the shore of the island he pushes off, rows away, leaving them and their swords there. Thus he proves his claim for what it is: indeed he is the finest swordsman in Japan. Do you see the application to my situation? I can outfight your establishment, but I will do so by not-fighting . . . if you follow my thought. It will be in fact my refusal to fight--yet showing my strength--which will frighten them the most, because they cannot imagine such power held but not used...' "

They wore dark blue kimonos tied with a red sash, and high-blocked geta sandals, and were never without their hardwood shakuhachi flutes, which they could wield with the defensive skill of a sword master attacked; but their strangest piece of apparel was the tengai, the woven reed basket that covered the head and protected the monk from wordly identification. Their efforts had brought him light and food and then a short period each day in the high-walled yard to exercise alone. Lastly the rule of silence had been withdrawn and he had been permitted to associate together with the others. "
Zionism galaxy 2175 Anderson, Poul. Fleet of Stars. New York: Tor (1997); pg. 298. "'Think. Legally, logically, nothing that has happened will forbit it. But humans are not driven by logic.

"The colony was not only efficient and prosperous, it was also able to provide decent jobs for all its inhabitants.

And the Israeli settlement had the advantage of possessing die-hard Zionist shock units, encamped on the desert proper, engaged in reclamation projects of all sorts... Alone, New Israel had reclaimed a third of all the desert land now under cultivation. It was, in fact, the only settlement on Mars which exported its produce back to Earth in any quantity.

"'Greetings from Fat'ah,' the hood nodded slightly, 'to all of the victims of Jewish oppression wherever they may be.' Everett, glaring at the screen, found himself clenching and spreading his big hands, surprised at his own first reaction. It was the same cold sick breathlessness he felt whenever he saw a small animal beneath the wheels of a truck. Then the blood began to sing in Everett's veins as Hakim Arif, gesturing with languid ease, proceeded to promise aid to the foes of the Israeli conspiracy. 'All over the world, victims of Zionism are rising to demonstrate a single will. The will to live in a free Quebec, a free South Molucca, a free Ireland,' he paused expertly... '--a free Palestine.' The hood jerked up. 'The Jew is the very symbol of oppression. he wants only his own land--and all of the land adjoining it. Ah, and the Coming of his Messiah, always the Coming.' " [More.
