Listen without ears

Speaking of frogs (which are a favourite topic in Zen) there is an article about a species of frog which listens without ears. But if listening without ears weren’t an actual fact this may well have been a koan which would go something like this:

Who is the man who
Speaks without tongue,
Listens without ears,
Sees without eyes?

Ancient fuel

Friend: So, did you read the story about moss surviving on poo from 8,000 years ago?

Me: That’s nothing. Man has been surviving on dead things that’s 650 million years old!
