The Goose in the Bottle

This koan has lasted me a lifetime.  Every time I think I understand it I have to go back and rethink it.  It’s not a riddle, which is why it can’t really be solved.  It is not even really a problem, it is simply a question, and it does have an answer, but the answer is not likely to resonate unless you change the way you think about what is being asked.
