The disciple asks a stupid question.

The master whacks him on the head.

The disciple says, "hey, why did you do that? Oh, I get it. You're
saying that some questions are meaningless, and that more generally,
words can actually be an obstacle to understanding. Why didn't you just
say so instead of hitting me?"

The master whacks the disciple on the head. Harder.

And the disciple was enlightened.
