Love Revolution begins and ends with Laotse's opening anthem of Book III, The Imitation of Tao. However, my word choices attempt a post-millennial transliteration of what I believe Laotse may have captured about Original Intent as deciphered through observation of natural systems. Lin Yutang's translation follows (p. 101, Modern Library, 1948, The Wisdom of Laotse).
14. Prehistoric Origins
Looked at, but cannot be seen--
That is called the Invisible (yi)
Listened to, but cannot be heard--
That is called the Inaudible (hsi).
Grasped at, but cannot be touched--
That is called the Intangible (wei).
These three elude all our inquiries
And hence blend and become One.
Not by its rising, is there light,
Nor by its sinking, is there darkness.
It cannot be defined,
And reverts again to the realm of nothingness.
That is why it is called the Form of the Formless,
The Image of Nothingness.
That is why it is called the Elusive:
Meet it and you do not see its face;
Follow it and you do not see its back.
He who holds fast to the Tao of old
In order to manage the affairs of Now
Is able to know the Primeval Beginnings
Which are the continuity of Tao
