Tao Te Ching Chapter 39-5 Filled valley
The valley attained One and got filled. (Ch.39)
In Taoism, "the valley" means emptiness.
"Valley God exists any time any where", says Lao Tzu in Chapter 6. (☞See also Valley God 6-1)
Once the emptiness gets Tao's energy, it gets filled and becomes a hologram.
The hologram constitutes the so-called world.
What you think has colours is in fact a hologram and emptiness.
色-[shiki]=colour (☞See Tao by Matsumoto / Chapter 4b / Color)
即-[soku]=just (or immediate)
空-[kuu]=emptiness (or sky)
色即是空 [shiki soku ze ku]
空即是色 [ku soku ze shiki]
"Colour is justly nothing.
Nothing is justly colour. " (Heart Sutra 般若心経)
That's how the Buddhists summarize the mechanism.
-Attain One 39-1
-Filled valley 39-5
-Hologram's birth 39-6
-Hologram's master 39-7
-One = Tao 39-8
-Heaven torn apart 39-9
-Earth unstable 39-10
-Gods rest 39-11
-Inexhaustible valley 39-12
-Lords and Kings = Masters 39-14
-Noble = Mean 39-15
-High = Low 39-16
-Lords and Kings = Less virtue 39-17
-Mean = Root 39-18
-No honor 39-19
-No jade 39-20
-Like stone 39-21
-Tao by Matsumoto / Tao Te Ching / Chapter 39
-Full = Empty 45-3
