Tao Te Ching Chapter 80-13 Life without intervention
But they get old and end their life without coming and going between their countries. (Ch.80)
"Without coming and going" is a key (=Kanreisu) to understand how holograms work.
It suggests "no intervention", "no interference".
Why is Lao Tzu against the interference to a hologram?
A dewdrop reflecting the moonlight. (☞See Dogs and Roosters 80-12)
This is a beautiful metaphor of the Tao/hologram mechanism, Shin 心.
The moonlight is Tao, which is true You.
The whole world is a dewdrop reflecting the moonlight, which is a hologram.
Without the modern concept of a hologram, Zen Buddhists needed to invent the expression "Eye storage / 眼蔵 [genzo]".
In terms of our interpretation of space, there is only one hologram, which includes all the beings, objects and intangible information such as thoughts alike.
In terms of our interpretation of time, there are a myriad of holograms, which are being created simultaneously.
"Life" is a name given to one group of them. (☞See Out-Tao (Heresy) Seniya / Gedo Senni / Settled 80-9)
"Life without coming and going" implies that there is no causation between holograms or dewdrops.
No causation, therefore no intervention. It is no use.
The unique causation is 複 [fuku] / return, which is to keep Tao's energy cycling and recycling.
A hologram stimulates Tao.
Tao gives birth to a hologram.
In conclusion, there is only the receiving and giving of Love, which is also called Tao.
This receiving and giving of Tao's energy takes place on your face. (☞See Face Transmission / Menju / Beauty 80-8)
That's why we don't have our face in the hologram.
Have you ever seen your face directly?

Lao Tzu answers your question!
☞«Recommended Books 10» Which is more dangerous, nature or human beings? To many Japanese, the question doesn't make sense because they think human beings are part of nature. The word "artificial" is not an antonym of "natural". The outside world is filled with plenty of Kami, gods, which may help and protect us, but sometimes in a whimsical way destroy us, destroy us completely. Please read Masuji Ibuse's short story «Salamander» first. The work is considered a masterpiece in Japan, and many students read it at school. Into a cave under the stream, a frog was swept. The salamander blocked the entrance of the cave with his body. The salamander had been captured there because his body was too big to get away. Now he had a "friend". If you have some time, before you go straight to «Black Rain», please read his «Castaways». It is about a young fisherman cast away by a typhoon and rescued by an American boat when it was illegal to leave Japan. Their docile acceptance of what it is and what it is happening will certainly give you another flavor when you read «Black Rain». Although Shohei Imamura's film is excellent, the end of the story is not precisely the same. It is worth reading the novel. Which after-taste do you prefer?
