    Default Janitor Monk questions

    Some Janitor Monk questions.

    1. Since enlightenment was his objective in life, why train his martial arts to such a high level?

    2. He evidently knew about Siu Yeun San's and Mo Yung Bok's feud for years. Why let it escalate so far before directly intervening?

    3. After outing himself, could he truly return to seclusion? Now that his existence was known, people would come to challenge him...seek out his guidance, etc. Even though he had nothing to fear because of his vastly superior abilities, it would be...annoying.

    1. Learning martial arts as a form of exercise to be healthy for enlightenment?

    2. All three know all three exist. Since there is no direct confrontation, why bother?

    3. Shaolin is so huge. And now there are two other contenders before one can get to Sweeper Monk.

    1. He might be a rather powerful fighter before he hit enlightenment and his later enlightenment probably supercharged his powers.

    2. PLOTPLOTPLOTPLOTPLOT.... if I had to cook up an excuse, probably before their fire deviation gave them enough suffering to realise that they rather be dead, Sweeps was hoping they would come to their senses without direct intervention. They didn't destroy his library when stealing the books but when that major scene came, if he didn't step in, the roof was definitely coming down.

    3. Unless you have the abilities of Jiumozhi. You still need to get through the 4 generations of Shaolin monks to meet the final boss. Also, only the Shaolin monks themselves, MRB, XYS, Jiumozhi, MRF, DY and XF were there to witness Sweeps. No other misc. wulin riffraff were there. Even XZ didn't get to meet him.
    Its BIxie Jianfa Gawdammit you guys!!!!
