Tao Te Ching Chapter 22-10 No bragging
He doesn't brag. So, he is successful. (Ch.22)
"Excuse me, sir, but it is rather conventional as a supposedly eccentric Taoist wisdom"
Taoism is not against conventional wisdom.
We just look at it a bit differently.
Bragging is a waste of energy.
If you want to transform your hologram (=the world) as economically and efficiently as possible, bragging is not recommended.
Being jealous is not recommended, either.
