Big’s image
Grasp Big's image, and the world under the sky will go.


♦  ♦  ♦

"Big" means Tao.

Lao Tzu is asking you to picture the image of Tao.

It is a nasty task because it is not possible.

The least harmful answer might be what you see in front of you, the world.

Let's call your hologram Tao.


Hologram = Tao?

Yes. Hologram = Tao.

It is a sheer contradiction, but, when you really accept it, your spiritual quest will end and the world of the holograms will go around.

Kukai 空海, pronounced as Kookai, means «Empty Ocean». It is a beautiful and philosophical name. I just wonder if this fashion house chose the name of the 9th century Japanese Buddhist intentionally or it is just a coincidence. Kitaro's music is always popular in Japan. We hear it fairly often without noticing it.

Whether you think it is harmful or not, Tao keeps on functioning.

It keeps on recreating itself. (☞ See Chapter 74 Reincarnation)

The world of holograms goes around.

It is like toppings on the ice cream.

Whether you like the toppings or not, they don't stop your ice cream from melting.

Big’s omnipresence
It's peaceful, calm, and Big. (Ch.35)

♦  ♦  ♦

IA: "Master Bonbon, what does Tao look


B: "Peace, brother."

A: "Eh, peace, Master


B: "Be calm, and you will see it."

A: "Be calm. I've gotta be calm. Then, I can see Tao. I will see it…. I can't see it. Oh, my god! I cannot see it!"

Not too bad. Not too bad, Master Bonbon, although we will never see


Or, I should say we are able to see Tao everywhere.

It is omnipresent.

Tao's sole objective is the creation and recreation of itself.

The rest is not important at all.

Music and Food
Music and food make the passing traveller stop. (Ch.35)

♦  ♦  ♦

We are all passing travelers in this world of holograms.

When we hear

beautiful music, we


When we smell the good odor of some food, we stop.

Like other holograms, music and food exist to stimulate us to emit more fundamental energy Tao.

Our destination is not the end of the life.

It is each act of accepting something and loving someone.
