Tao Te Ching Chapter 52-1 Constant "beginning"
In the world under the sky, there is a beginning. (Ch.52)
The world has its constant beginning.
In other words, this world begins and ends simultaneously without interruption.
There is a constant "beginning" in your hologram (="the world under the sky").
It is a constant "Big Bang".
Time is a measure that you use to reconstruct the world in your mind.
Master Dogen advises us:
"Don't think that time only flies away."
(Uji 有時, «Shobogenzo»)
In Tao, time doesn't exist.
Therefore, there is neither the beginning of life nor the end of it.
不生不滅 [fusho fumetsu].

☞Yukio Mishima wrote the play «My Friend Hitler» in 1968. Three years earlier, in 1965, he wrote another play called «Madame de Sade». The former does not have any female principal characters. The latter no male ones. The Japanese novelist who cut his Hara later considered them a diptych.
