Tao Te Ching Chapter 22-13 Empty words
There is an old saying "Twisted therefore complete". How can it be empty words! (Ch.22)
Being twisted is perfect.
Chaos is perfect.
Chaos is perfectly organized in a fashion beyond our comprehension.
So-called human capacities are very limited.
The most advanced science in the 19th century was a laughingstock in the 20th century.
What's gonna happen to the most advanced science in the 20th century.
Lao Tzu, supposedly an old man in the 6th century BC, said: "Twisted therefore complete".
Look at the Yin Yang circle. It is twisted therefore complete.
How can it be empty words!
But, wait a minute!
All words are empty, aren't they?

-Ran, a war or a revolt; a commotion or a chaos. Kurosawa's Ran is beautifully organized. You have a yellow team, a red team, and a blue team. It was not like that in the real history, but it is easier to distinguish one from another especially if you are not familiar with the Japanese samurai era.
