Though things grow thick, respectively they go back to their root. (Ch.16)
The more you think about something, the more energy you feed to your hologram.
Then, it develops. Mutually holograms create (define) each other.
You create (define) others.
Others create (define) you.
But, in fact, all of them are the same because it is the fundamental energy Tao.
Don't be misled by the word "go back".
There is no time in Tao.
Time exists only in your head.
Everything happens simultaneously.
Even the future and the past are being created now.
