1 Tao can be spoken of, but is not the Taoof whom we commonly speak;A name can be given, but not a common name. 32 He can be called non-being,because he preceded Heaven and earth;He can be called pre-being, because he gave birth to all that is.3 Therefore, since he is non-being, his wonderscan be meditated upon;Since he is being, his track can be se1en.
