Tao Te Ching Chapter 5-3 Is a bellows a hologram?


Today's Tao

Between heaven and earth, isn't it a bellows? (Ch.5)


Lao Tzu chose this word "bellows" as a metaphor in order to tell us about holography?

I think he did.

It must have been extremely difficult to explain the world projected in our mind without the help from the concept of holography.

Personally I think this is the missing link between Zen and Taoism.

Dogen the Japanese Zen master wrote a voluminous work called Shobogenzo. What does Shobogenzo mean?

Shobo means "right teachings". Gen means "eye". Zo means "storage".

An eye storage?

Am I wrong if I interpret it as a hologram?

Here, Taoism despised by Dogen and the Japanese master himself shake hands.

The title of his book could be translated "The right teaching about the holography in one's mind".
