Tao Te Ching Chapter 24-1 Tiptoeing
A tiptoeing man doesn't stand. (Ch.24)
When you are tiptoeing, you get tired easily and cannot keep the position for a long time.
Well, Lao Tzu wants to tell you:
"Don't show off".
He also likes the expression:
"Be like dust".
Would you like to be a king in your hologram?
Or, would you like to be reconciled with your hologram, which is the world?

-Is the story taking place in Japan? A true fan of Kurosawa's films may wonder about it when he sees Hayao Miyazaki's animation features. A true admirer of Mishima's literature may wonder about it when he reads Haruki Murakami's novels. They are not very Japanese, he may wonder. Probably, he will find in Kenji Miyazawa's works the roots of the strange mixture between Japanese and pseudo-European atmospheres.
