Tao Te Ching Chapter 11-1 30 spokes
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.
-30 spokes 11-1
-Doors and windows 11-5
-Nothing is working 11-7
-Tao by Matsumoto / Tao Te Ching / Chapter 11
-Vessels 28-13 "When the uncarved block scatters, it becomes vessels." This is another metaphor of a hologram.
-No work 63-2
-Tao = Net 73-9 "Heaven's net is vast. Its mesh is not fine, but it doesn't lose any." Lao Tzu uses metaphors to explain the Tao/hologram mechanism.
Tao answers your question!
