here's a spicy maguromaki.

Image

it consists of rice, a bit of vinegar, raw tuna and spices.

now, you get how it tastes on my tongue?

i don't ask you to get the similar taste.

i ask you to get the exact taste of the exact maguromaki with the exact positioning on the exact portion of my very tongue.

explain this in words?

forget it in words, i know very well i can't in words. but, i will try my best.

first of all, i need to cut our tongues and transplant them between you and me.

I would describe the taste of a maguromki as "not yet experienced".

Sweet if it's on the tip of your tongue; salty if on the edges near the tip; sour if on the edges further back; bitter if in the middle of the backmost part of the tongue.

At least that's what I was taught in school biology class, with credit going to a man by the name of Edwin Boring.

Had I been born a few years later, I'd have learned that biologists had grown bored with the Boring theory and replaced it with a new one in which the taste buds on all parts of the tongue are able to detect all tastes (rather as with the Abhidhamma's account of the jivhaa-pasaada), although varying in their sensitivity to each kind of taste.
    ...and this thought arose in the mind of the Blessed One:
    “Who lives without reverence lives miserably.”
    Uruvela Sutta, A.ii.20

    It were endless to dispute upon everything that is disputable.

Dear dharmapasschakra,

I am not sure, that came into my mind

how ever, it would maybe give rise to much gratitude if given to eat.

Maybe not necessary, maybe it should not be for a taste?
