All of your schemes and thoughts and ideas are empty! If you look behind their backs, it is like looking at a mask. If you look behind a mask, you see that it is hollow. There may be a few holes for the nostrils and the mouth—but if you look behind it, it doesn’t look like a face anymore. It is just junk with holes in it. You realize that you are just authoring absurd, nonexistent things. That is the best protection for cutting confusion.
