Tao Te Ching Chapter 11-1 30 spokes

Today's Tao

Thirty spokes share one hub. (Ch.11)

Again, this is a metaphor of holography.

Imagine a movie theatre where they project images 360 degrees around you.

You are at its centre like the hub.

The spokes are a beautiful metaphor for the beams of light projected by the projector.

Please compare this to Chuang Tzu's metaphor of the frog in the well. (☞See Tao by Matsumoto Chapter 5b What's a hologram)

It is nice, too.
