Comment: 	Re: SHK 18.0464 Shakespeare and (East) Asian Philosophy/Religion

Rick Jones writes ...

"I'm looking for materials relating Shakespeare-especially the 
comedies-to East Asian religions and philosophies.  I'm particularly 
interested in exploring the philosophical Taoist concept of yin and 
yang, but Zen, Shinto, Pure Land, Confucianism, etc., all might be 
relevant."

If "all might be relevant", why stop there?  Have you thought about 
Shakespeare's relationship to the Klingon religion, or to cargo cults?
