Tao 56

To understand is to experience what words cannot describe.
To describe with words is inadequate to understanding.

Fill the gaps.
Simplify complexity.
Moderate extremity.
Move toward a state of high entropy.
This is ultimate unity.

It cannot be surrounded or separated.
It cannot be enhanced or hindered.
It cannot be lauded or condemned.
Ever changing, it remains unaffected.

It is, therefore, the ultimate in existence.
