  1. Interesting article on China Beat on Daoism and “Avatar”.

    Too bad it doesn’t seem to have a comment section; the piece mentions “unobtainium” and says it’s a very Daoist idea; true that, but the writer seems to imply that the word was made up for this movie. Actually it’s a term that’s been in use for quite a long time in engineering, technology and, well, most of the sciences. So much so that it’s got its own Wikipedia entry.
