Returning is Tao's move.

Being weak is Tao's means.

Everything under the sky is born from you.

You are born from nothing.



Everything goes back to Tao.

Be weak and use Dark Depth Female. It is your means to change your hologram (=the world).

Your own self is the mother of the world because it projects the world (=your hologram).

"Nothing" means Tao. Tao is your mother because it projects your own "self". Then, who are you? True You are Tao itself.
