Tao Te Ching Chapter 40-12 Changing
The plainest attainment seems changing. (Ch.40)
Changing is the fundamental of all the fundamentals of everything.
Now it is about time we discussed the most important question.
What is Tao?
It is the name of the constant change.
It is the constant exchange of the energy.
The energy creates the energy.
The energy stimulates the energy.
The energy emits the energy.
The energy receives the energy.
The energy change hands inside itself.
If it ceases to change, the energy stops.
Keeping this constant change is our raison d'être.
The rest has no importance.

Tao answers your question!
-«Sanma no aji», the taste of Sanma. Sanma 秋刀魚 is the name of a fish. A Pasific saury, they call it. Please see the Kanji / Chinese characters here. The characters mean [autumn] [sword] [fish] in the order. Once it was a delicacy in autumn. Now it has become a everyday cheap fish that Japanese children hate. A sizzling grilled Sanma with a nice cup of miso soup used to be a happy-meal-combo in a quiet Japanese village clad in red momiji.
