Tao Te Ching Chapter 57-6 More useful tools
The more useful tools the people have, the more disordered the state gets. (Ch.57)
One can read this piece of wisdom of Lao Tzu as the encouragement of disarmament or the dissuasion from hiring intelligent and brilliant consultants for the nation's top positions.
We all know the stories.
Arms races and financial crises are metaphors and prayers.
Let's remember that the words "people" and "state" signify your hologram.
"Useful tools" like intelligence simply provoke disorder in the hologram.
If you have power or intelligence, can you stay away from using them to act on the rest of the world (=your hologram)?

Tao answers your question!
☞The title of the famous tune in Nagisa Oshima's «Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence» is «Forbidden Colors». This is the same as one of Yukio Mishima's novels. "Iro", which means color in Japanese, often signifies lust. Please look at the photo of the book on the left and use your imagination what kind of lust is forbidden and how much pleasure they get because of this very prohibition. Just click the publicity on the right and enjoy the sample music at the Amazon site. I am sure you have heard the beautiful melody composed by Ryuichi Sakamoto, who acted in the film as a Japanese officer at a prison camp in Indonesia during World War 2.
