words, writing and procrastination 

So while multitasking, I find this fascinating site through someone’s goggling of “correlation”…. :

Correlations: Taoist Thought Tools

Correlations, a psychological technique, disassembles your mind's dialectic process allowing your mind to reassemble itself with 'mysterious sameness' as its foundation. It gradually neutralizes bias - all bias - which makes it an arduous process; deep down we want our biases to be reenforced, not neutralized. Test it out and see for yourself.

I briefly looked and found it interesting as far as the use of a phpBB(an open source bulletin board) to convey an interesting idea and process of transforming opposites into “sameness”. While I am getting into words, my attentiveness travels into wonder and I loose the point at times… and I don’t know much about TAO, although I am deeply interested in knowing.

Back to work!

The Tao Te Ching was written in China roughly 2,500 years ago at about the same time when Buddha expounded the Dharma in India and Pythagoras taught in Greece. The Tao Te Ching is probably the most influential Chinese book of all times. Its 81 chapters have been translated into English more times than any other Chinese document.
The Tao Te Ching provides the basis for the philosophical school of Taoism, which is an important pillar of Chinese thought. Taoism teaches that there is one undivided truth at the root of all things. It literally means:


= tao (the way)
= te (strength/virtue)
= ching (scripture)

Here is a link with the translations of the Tao Te Ching. It is worth reading for the simple virtues it discusses.
