Tao Te Ching Chapter 11-5 Doors & windows
You cut out doors and windows, and you make a room. (Ch.11)
Let's decode this.
Without an empty space, we cannot use a room.
Naoto Matsumoto adds:
Osamu Kanaya, the author of «Roshi» 老子 (Lao Tzu) alludes to yaodongs 窰洞 in north China. They are dogouts carved out of a hill.
Carving out doors and windows is thus explained.
But aren't we really carving out our reality?
Carefully carved holograms are our world.
