Tao Te Ching Chapter 32-2 Small uncarved block
Though the uncarved block is small, no one under the sky can make it his minister very well. (Ch.32)
It is a good suggestion.
Many people try to control Tao.
Lao Tzu makes it clear that it is impossible.
"The uncarved block", which is Tao, is not just small, but doesn't have any volume at all.
"The world under the sky" means your hologram.
You cannot control Tao from the side of the hologram by any means, neither by any exercise nor prayer, not to mention any scientific measure.
I hope that you don't practice Taoism or Zen Buddhism, thinking that you will be able to control Tao.

-I am sincerely proud that I was born in a country where «The life of amorous woman» and «Five women who loved love» are considered to be part of our greatest literary achievement. The English titles may have been somehow "softened" for the public to think that it is a "serious" literary work. The titles in Japanese, «Koushoku Ichidai Onna» and «Koushoku Gonin Onna», mean more indecent than those in English. I may translate them as «The most lecherous woman in one life» and «The five most lecherous women» respectively.
