Yin Yang Fountain

This week, I come up with my pcom idea and did some basic research. I also tested the physical interaction part.





- nature

- human beings

- Yin and Yang

- Taoism & Lao Tsu


The highest good is like that of water. The goodness of water is that it benefits the ten thousand creatures;yet itself does not scramble,but is content with the places that all men disdain. It is this that makes water so near to the Way. And if men think the ground the best place for building a house upon,If among thoughts they value those that are profound,If in friendship they value gentleness,In words,truth;in government,good order;In deeds,effectiveness;in actions,timeliness- In each case it is because they prefer what does not lead to strife, And therefore does not go amiss. Even ordinary people realize the importance of the Taoist principle of ‘water-like’ behaviour,i.e. not striving to get on top or to the fore.



There was something undefined and complete,coming into existence before Heaven and Earth. How still it was and formless,standing alone,and undergoing no change,reaching everywhere and in no danger(of being exhausted)!It may be regarded as the Mother of all things.

I do not know its name,and I give it the designation of the Tao(the Way or Course)。Making an effort(further)to give it a name I call it The Great.

Great,it passes on(in constant flow)。Passing on,it becomes remote. Having become remote,it returns. Therefore the Tao is great;Heaven is great;Earth is great;and the(sage)king is also great. In the universe there are four that are great,and the(sage)king is one of them.

Man takes his law from the Earth;the Earth takes its law from Heaven;Heaven takes its law from the Tao. The law of the Tao is its being what it is.



The Tao produced One;One produced Two;Two produced Three;

Three produced All things. All things leave behind them the Obscurity(out of which they have come),and go forward to embrace the Brightness(into which they have emerged),while they are harmonised by the Breath of Vacancy.


There is nothing in the world more soft and weak than water,and yet for attacking things that are firm and strong there is nothing that can take precedence of it;——for there is nothing(so effectual)
