Tao Te Ching Chapter 38-13 Thick & Thin
Therefore, a great man remains in its thickness and stays away from its thinness. (Ch.38)
Thickness means Tao.
In Chapter 15 Man who knew Tao Lao Tzu says:
"Thick, as if he were an uncarved block."
Thickness = an uncarved block = Tao
(☞See also Chapter 28 Uncarved block)
Thinness means a hologram.
A hologram is superficial.
Besides, Lao Tzu asks you to stay away from the thin hologram, which we call the world.
You should detach yourself from your world. Don't get stuck in there.
Nevertheless, we must not despise it.
Because it is the flower of Tao's manifestation (=法華 [hokke])
It stimulates you to emit more Love / Tao energy to turn the wheel of manifestation, 法輪 [horin].
The act is called 転法輪 [tenborin].
