Tao Te Ching Chapter 65-3 Harmful intelligence
Therefore, governing a country by intelligence does it harm. (Ch.65)
Is intelligence harmful?
That's what Lao Tzu is saying here.
"Governing a country" means "controlling your hologram".
It is about your attitude towards your own self and the rest of the world.
You should not control them by intelligence.
Why is intelligence harmful?
Because intelligence induces the dichotomy between your own self and the objective world.
The one and only objective world is a myth.
The seemingly outside world is part of the hologram along with your own self.
If you think intelligence is a useful tool to analyze and control the hologram, you are refusing to accept it as a catalyst.
Forget being smart, and you will have no resistance against the world in front of you.

Tao answers your question!
☞剣禅一如 [ken zen ichi nyo]. This is the teachings of Miyamoto, Musashi. It means: "The sword and Zen are the same". He wrote «The Book of Five Rings / Gorin no Sho». Musashi's sword is certainly Zen Master Dogen's Genzo 眼蔵, or the hologram. ☞If the sword is Zen, is Aikido science? It is a difficult question. But, at least, we have a Japanese gentleman who practices both at the highest levels. He is Tatsuo Kimura. He is one of the highest disciples of late Yukiyoshi Sagawa and a professor of mathematics at University of Tsukuba in Japan. He wrote «Transparent Power». It is about the principles of Aikido.
