Ever since I started getting into Tao and Zen, I see the concepts everywhere, in rock songs meant as anthems to art punks of the 80's, in hymns, in humour, in places one would never normally expect to find them. To some, that would increase their unversal significance and existence. You can find Taoist and Zen beliefs in more things, I think, than you can find those of other faiths, religions, spiritualities, and philosophies. The worst thing that's happened to either Tao or Zen, is being relegated to the same place we put religions. They are so much more than that.
