When it gets hot, he stabs it into Polyphemus's eye, making him blind. Odysseus, also, had a plan to get passed Polyphemus, while he is blocking the exit. Since Odysseus knows Polyphemus can't see, they are going to attach to the cattle's under-side, while Polyphemus is checking the cattle.(EL)

The first disciplines are "The Major Heavenly Disciplines." The Monkey King learns them because he feels he is godly but wasn't invited to the party for the gods & by learning these he can become a true god. The next four he learns are "The Major Disciplines of Vulnerability" so that he can become truly immortal and become stronger and greater than the rest of the gods. The last four are "The Major Disciplines of Bodily Form" so that he can become the greatest of any god and defeat anybody in his path or that laughs at him for being a monkey.(AJ)

Another comparison is how the Greek gods never experience physical pain while the Chinese gods feel pain along with being mortals unlike the immortal Greek gods.(AJ)
