[For all that Seiga has been in Mayfield for a month, she has kept a very, very low profile. So low as to make everyone think she wasn't there at all.

When she speaks, her voice is low and calm.]

The tao that can be told
is not the eternal Tao
The name that can be named
is not the eternal Name.

The unnamable is the eternally real.
Naming is the origin
of all particular things.

Free from desire, you realize the mystery.
Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations.

Yet mystery and manifestations
arise from the same source.
This source is called darkness.

Darkness within darkness.
The gateway to all understanding.

Do you know what this means?
