Tao Te Ching Chapter 16-4 Go back
I see them go back again. (Ch.16)
Holograms are illusions.
Nevertheless, they are truly precious because they are Tao's manifestations.

The state is called Bumo misho izen in Zen Buddhism.

-While Ikkyu seemed more a poet thatn a Zen Buddhist, Ryokan was a Zen Buddhist and poet at the same time. It is well known that he adored the fleas and lice that inhabited his clothes.
