ED,
 
Does killing the Buddha resolve the problem of whether you should jump off the 
precipice, or turn back to avoid killing your self?

Anthony,
"If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him ." 
signifies:  
"[Zen is] a special transmission outside of the scriptures,
No reliance on words and letters,
A direct pointing to the heart/mind of man,
And the realization of enlightenment."
