Tao Te Ching Chapter 42-4 Birth of everything
Three gives birth to everything. (Ch.42)
Chuang Tzu talks about it as follows:
"There are divisions in the One not yet formed.
Without intermission, without in-between space.
This is called Life.
The One flows and gives birth to things.
Things are completed and have discerning lines.
This is called Form."
(«Chuang Tzu» 12 - 8)
The dynamic exchange of the energy in Tao creates a hologram as a catalyst to provoke another emission of energy.
This is your life and self, and all the objects in your world.
After every cycle, you reincarnate.
There is no time in Tao.
So, every step takes place simultaneously.

Tao answers your question!
-We need our soul food once in a while. When we are down, sometimes eating our soul food is the only solution to cheer us up. The problem is that the food is not all the time available especially when you live away from home. How can you order your favorite clam chowder in Zimbabwe? In my case, my soul food is miso ramen. These days, it is not too difficult to find miso and ramen. Nevertheless, mixing miso and ramen does not exactly make a nice dish of miso ramen. You know what I am talking about if you have ever lived in Japan. Then, what can I do? I look to Kurosawa's «Seven Samurai» for help. It is not food, but is my soul film. Besides, you can find this DVD in any country where movie aficionados are allowed to live.
