6. Two mountains
Yáng Wénguang, while involved in a military campaign,
was besieged by the enemy for three months within Liu zhou.
He dreamt one night that he was running toward two mountains:
His officers and soldiers explained to him:
"Two mountains: shan (written the Chinese way, from top to bottom),
this gives chu : to get out ".
The next day, they indeed managed to break the siege.
Between two mountains there is an opening,
an exit to an unbearable situation.
The dream can be easily understood:
no alternative was left to Yáng Wénguang
other than to dare to escape.
By its symbolism, it is the mirror to Alexander's dream
before the take over of Tyr:
compensation in place of power
