    Summary

    Silver eyes have closed forever, and some humans do not rejoice.
    They yell and throw in anger, calling out for people who aren’t there anymore. They close their eyes and mourn quietly, for noise is forbidden. They cry and call out for a brother, a parent, a lover.
    Wei Wuxian doesn’t know of this.
    He is too busy being reborn.
    He opens his eyes and looks up. He sees a rabbit.

    Summary

    In his recent article in Contemporary Theories of Cultivation, Lan (2019) sets out to study the correlation between instrument choice and outcomes in the liberation of spirits. While his main thesis appears sound, his decision to limit the study to the qin, dizi, xiao and pipa undermines his conclusions.

    This decision falls prey to the fallacy that tradition cannot be questioned. It ignores, too, the fact that many practising cultivators will encounter spirits that will have no exposure to such “expectations.” In a small study comparing the use of a dizi with a theremin—undoubtedly a non-traditional choice—the theremin produced optimal outcomes in liberating spirits where: time since death was less than 6 months; spirit was younger than 25 and older than 17 at time of death; or spirit motivation included aspects of revenge. The conclusions reached in Lan (2019), while providing a foundation for future study, are therefore as yet incomplete.
