Tao Te Ching Chapter 78-3 No change
It is because nothing can change it. (Ch.78)
We have to make one thing quite clear.
There is no such thing as "change in a hologram".
"But wait a minute! Water isn't a symbol of constant change?", some might ask.
Let's make it clear.
One hologram does not change as a frame in a film does not.
"Change" is a word given to our interpretation of the sequence of holograms.
All the holograms are created simultaneously.
Time is a parameter to interpret them.
Lao Tzu says that nothing can change the water.
Nothing can change a hologram.
Nothing can change you.
