Tao Te Ching Chapter 4-3 Filled emptiness
Filled, it looks as if it existed. (Ch.4)
Today, we have the famous, and sometimes notorious oriental maxim, "Everything is nothing, and nothing is everything".
Although things fill some space, they do not really exist.
In other words, although things seem to exist and occupy their space, they are empty.
One can understand this according to quantum physics, but I prefer a theory of neurosurgeon Karl Pribram.
He believes that we reconstruct the world in our brains as a holographic image.
This is one step closer to Taoism.
-Filled emptiness 4-3
-Creator of Creator 4-5
-Tao by Matsumoto / Tao Te Ching / Chapter 4
-Tao by Matsumoto / Masters hit your face
-Tao by Matsumoto / Colour
-Tao by Matsumoto / Zen is Love
-Valley God It is also about Zero Point Field.
-In Chapter 4 / Tao's function, between "Profound, it looks like the origin of everything." (Origin 4-2) and "Filled, it looks as if it existed." (Filled emptiness 4-3), you can find "Dull the sharpness. Untangle the entanglements. Soften the light. Be like dust". The sentences seem to have been inserted by accident, so they are discussed in Chapter 56 / How to be one with Tao, which is more appropriate.
Lao Tzu answers your question!
