Tao Te Ching Chapter 38-12 Foreknowledge
What you call foreknowledge is the flower of Tao and the beginning of stupidity. (Ch.38)
Foreknowledge, telling something before it happens, has been fascinating men for a long time.
But, right here Lao Tzu says it is the beginning of stupidity.
It is logic because there is no time in Tao.
Foretelling doesn't exist. Don't let stupidity reign over your mind.
"Flower" suggests superficiality and holography.
In Buddhism, they use the expression of 法華 [hokke], the flowers of manifestation.
It is you who are creating your hologram.
Why do you need someone else to tell you about it?

-Sometimes we think that God is silent facing injustice. Why doesn't He help us? Shusaku Endo asks the question. In Japanese traditional plays, the question is asked a little different way. Silence itself is the place we go back to.
