Tao Te Ching Chapter 28-13 Vessels
When the uncarved block scatters, it becomes vessels. (Ch.28)
I like this beautiful image.
An uncarved block splits up and scatters all over.
Then, the tiny pieces will get together and form vessels everywhere.
The uncarved block means Tao.
The vessels can be objects or people.
In any case, they are holograms.
Here, we have another fantastic metaphor on how Tao's holography works.
-Valley under the sky 28-4
-Attainment of constancy 28-5
-Protect Darkness 28-8
-Valley, male, female 28-9
-Under the sky 28-10
-Constancy attainment 28-11
-Uncarved block 28-12
-Chief officials 28-14
-The greatest control 28-15
-Tao by Matsumoto / Tao Te Ching / Chapter 28
-30 spokes 11-1 "30 spokes share one hub." This is another interesting metaphor.
-Tao = Net 73-9 "Heaven's net is vast. Its mesh is not fine, but it doesn't lose any." Lao Tzu uses metaphors to explain the Tao/hologram mechanism.
Tao answers your question!

-«The Tale of Genji» is definitely the best novel written in Japanese. The translator of the book on the left is Donald Keene, who is definitely the best researcher of Japanese literature outside, and probably inside as well, the Japanese archipelago. It is quite ironical that, thanks to World War 2, we have this American gentleman and exceptional scholar. He was trained as a intelligence officer. Well, he decoded the classic nicely.
