"The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal name. The nameless is the beginning of heaven and earth.

These two spring from the same source but differ in name; this appears as darkness. Darkness within darkness. The gate to all mystery."
- Tao Te Ching - Lao Tzu - chapter 1
