i just took a course at my university that revolved entirely around tao te-ching's works. the whole "illusion" thing isn't talking about some
illusion of reality... it's all metaphors for finding who we really are as people. most of his works are simply guides to finding things like inner
peace and contentment. !no offense meant! - by all means questioning everything is great... but, please don't take a wonderful author and
throw him in with some matrix style "illusion" theory. i will try to find a link for my professor's site-- he has tons of material for tao
te-ching and i'm positive many people on this site would find what he is really talking about EXTREMELY interesting.
