The Supreme Sock Council hearing regarding the September sock specimen turned out to be unusually peaceful. The members of the Council unanimously approved the polka dot pattern, although the reasons varied from Councilor to Councilor. The proposed sock design caught the eye of many because in Zen Buddhism, a circle is perceived to be a symbol of perfection. The Councilors found no reason not to produce a sock synonymous with perfection itself. Others maintained that the installation of circles would contribute to the reduction of friction between the sock and the inside wall of the shoe, resulting in extended longevity for the sock. Although it is quite improbable that a polka dot pattern would have such an effect on the sock, it remains certain that the motif disallowed any friction from occurring within the Council, enabling it to reach a very rare unanimous consensus.
