Tao Te Ching Chapter 24-7 Excessive food
From the point of view of Tao, they are excessive food and unnecessary conduct. (Ch.24)
Well, today, we have an useful short list of no-nos in Taoism (not all, though).
1, Don't show off.
2, Don't live a fast life.
3, Don't try to convince others.
4, Don't judge.
5, Don't brag.
6, Don't tell you are creating your hologram.
All of them are excessive and unnecessary.
They are contrary to the attitude of Dark Depth Female 玄牝 [gen pi], with which you can smooth the flow of the fundamental energy Tao.

-You can call me conservative. I like a person who invents something. I like Dogen because he was honest and accurate. I like Daruma because he was sincere without bla bla bla. I like Buddha the best because he was a Momofuku Ando of Buddhism. Who is Momofuku Ando? He is the one who invented instant noodles.
