The Lost Wisdom of Tao In the beginning, it was darkness.

The Lost Wisdom of Tao In the beginning, it was darkness. "... 'Let there be light', and there was light." Light is energy. Energy can create matter. This was how the Universe began billions and billions of years ago, so we were told. Since the beginning of the Universe, Energy has always played a dominant role as a chief driving force for all courses of events. Yet far more powerful than energy is the wisdom of Tao. Tao is the nameless and the formless, the gateway to all subtleties, the law of laws of nature, the most profound of the profound, the guidance of Energy. Tao permeates everywhere, but only in ancient times were there real masters who could grasp the essence of Tao. Many astounding events, human and otherwise, have taken place since the Universe began, but most of these early events were forgotten and few were recorded. Nevertheless, some events taking place during the dawn of civilization in the Middle Kingdom were captured in annals. One such set of annals detailed a series of inexplicable feats achieved through the wisdom of Tao. These enigmatic feats were accomplished by the few who had mastered the wisdom of Tao. At the end of this period of history, under a decree of peace, Taoists of the three Sects agreed never to become involved with human affairs again and they all sequestered to remote mountains to continue their pursuit of Tao. The wisdom of Tao thus became lost and has not been recaptured since. Quite accidentally I came upon this set of unusual annals which gave a detailed depiction of events during that period. The annals were cryptically written in the ancient language of the Middle Kingdom. Armed with the knowledge of this ancient language (which I learned from distant disciples of the great master teacher Confucius), I managed to accomplish the difficult task of deciphering the mystifying messages embodied. Incredible as these narrations may seem, they did take place, as contended by the annals. However, since these events took place such a long time ago, only scattered (though numerous) artifacts of that period were preserved and found. It will probably take a few more centuries; at least, for historians and archeologists to reconstruct the lost wisdom of Tao from these artifacts, if ever. In the meantime, I decided to make the only depictions of the power of the wisdom of Tao known to the world. During the wee hours when I struggled to decipher the cryptic messages of the annals, I often developed the strange feeling that I could feel the presence of the Great Master of Tao, Lao Tzu, a Yoda of his time. In the hopes of my heart, perhaps one day this Great Master will once again come upon us to reveal the wisdom of Tao.

In Volume 2, competitions of the wisdom of Tao in the ten matrices of war escalated. Eventually Interceptus lost ground, and the Imperial Teacher died as he tried to escape. However, Sect Elucidatus also suffered great losses. More disciples from Interceptus and Elucidatus joined in, and the competition on the abilities of Tao further intensified. Magic weapons and unbelievable magical feats were displayed in the battlefield. One Taoist, Terra Walker could literally disappeared into the earthen ground and walked in the earthen medium. Eventually, as competition of wisdom of Tao escalated further, Patriarch of Sect Interceptus, Savant of Heaven, became personally engaged, so did the leaders of the two other sects, Lao Tzu of Antropodus and Primeval of Interceptus. The war matrix set up by Savant of Heaven was broken, and he vowed another even more vicious war matrix, the Matrix of Ten Thousand Gods. After a fierce engagement, many disciples from both Interceptus and Elucidatus died, but the matrix was also destroyed. At this moment, the teacher of the three Sects, Eternal Prosperity, the Grand Master of Tao, appeared and ordered the three Sects to cease all hostilities. A decree of peace was issued. Leader of the three Sects promised that henceforth their Sects and disciples would never be involved in human affairs. They all went back to their respective Sect headquarters, in the deepest corners of high mountains, to continue their pursuit of the wisdom of Tao. The commander-in-chief of the army of the new Duke West, King of Arms (who succeeded his father), Jiang Sarn, then launched the long awaited eastward campaign against the tyrant Zoe. Many free-lance Taoists came to the aid of Zoe, including some bioTaoists who used germ warfare. All efforts ended in failure and eventually the army of Duke West encircled the city of Morning Song, the capital of Shang. Jiang Sarn convinced the residents to surrender the city, which they did. Emperor Zoe came out of the Forbidden City to face his challenger, but he was defeated and then he escaped inside the Forbidden City. Both Dar Gee and another elf escaped while Zoe was fighting. Emperor Zoe, in desperation, killed himself by setting fire to his palace, the Star Plucker Pavilion. Both Dar Gee and her companion were captured by Goddess Woman Wa and they were delivered to Jiang Sarn's camp, and they were executed by a magic device. King of Arms ascended the throne and founded Zhou Dynasty in 1046 BCE. The leader of Sect Elucidatus, Primeval, was authorized by the Invisible Master of the Universe to appoint Jiang Sarn to carry out one last mission: The resurrection of the war dead. All war dead were appointed deities to serve humans. A new era had begun. This Book is published by EHGBooks - A Micropublisher with authorized distribution sales channel over Amazon.com.
