Tao Te Ching Chapter 14-10 «Yama Uba» under it
It is not dark even if it is under it. (Ch.14)
Japanese Zen Master Ikkyu supposedly wrote a Noh play called «Yama Uba» in order to explain how Tao (= Zen) functions.
Behind any human or natural activity lies Tao.
Tao's function is symbolised by an old woman roaming in the mountains, who helps working people without letting them know her presence.
Master Ikkyu wrote it in the fifteenth century.
I wonder if it was easier then to receive Tao's energy by cherishing the holographic world.
