7 Deadly Sins

After the brilliant movie “Se7en”, everybody knows about the 7 deadly sins. It is a good movie, shocking to my young system back then but is brilliant, on par with the other David Finchers such as FIGHT CLUB, ALIEN and such.

I didn’t know in Go there is also a 7 deadly sins until I read Janice Kim’s book, THE DRAGON STYLE (well….. attempting to link Go with movies…. tsk tsk….).

The 7 deadly sins in the movie are:

1. Lust
2. Gluttony
3. Greed
4. Sloth
5. Wrath
6. Envy
7. Pride

Let’s have a look at Janice Kim’s 7 deadly dangers in Go:

1. Fear
2. Agitation
3. Greed
4. Thoughtlessness
5. Irrationality
6. Anger
7. Envy

Wow, quite a bit of similarity there, isn’t it.

The funny thing is how these are so true, and how these are great human weaknesses.

Hmmmm…… I wonder why LUST is not part of the Go weakness….. it will be pretty sexy if it is…… ^^
