When the spiritual teacher and his disciples began their evening meditation, the cat who lived in the monastery made such noise that it distracted them. So the teacher ordered that the cat be tied up during the evening practice. Years later, when the teacher died, the cat continued to be tied up during the meditation session. And when the cat eventually died, another cat was brought to the monastery and tied up. Centuries later, learned descendants of the spiritual teacher wrote scholarly treatises about the religious significance of tying up a cat for meditation practice.
this story was taken from:
If there is evidence that the first teacher tied up the cat because it distracted the meditation and the cat was just a cat the first teacher liked thus had nothing to do with meditation, will you forget tying up the cat from now on when meditating? Or you reject the evidence because for many times you tie up any cat it helps you meditate? Or you start questioning the evidence and find a way to call it “false” evidence?
