    This is off topic, but can I ask if the app is called Amino?

    Just explain it as profound insight that one gains into the functioning of the world after secluding oneself from the world for an interminable period of time. :blobpeek:

    Depends on how you want to present to people. The simplest way is to explain it as:
    1) The operating laws of the world
    2) The consciousness of the world

    Or if you're a Chinese Cultivator, it's that thing that's trying to keep you from being powerful and hurls lightning at you every now and then.

    In xianxia logic, the universe has laws that a master can't even explain. You're on your own to figure them out.

    I think the easiest and most absolute dumbed down version would be that the heavenly dao = laws of nature, heaven’s will. It’s similar to if there was a plague, westerns would see it as punishment from God while easterners could see it as a sign from the heavens.

    All Creation works on Laws and these Seek people actively to be their Master. These Creation Laws are collectively called the Heavenly Dao and are a blessing to some but a disaster to those that fail in the test to become their Master. To those that pass their tests, rebirth and renewal to greater powers awaits, while those that fail are vaporized to dust, never to be seen again. For those that gain the complete approval of a specific Law, they have earned the right to be called Gods for the Law now bows to them and they have become Gods in fact as well as in name.

    How's that for a synopsis attempt?

    I can explain but since I’m already preaching the Dao to the neighbors cat that keeps showing up on my porch I would have to charge :bloboh::bloboh::bloboh:

    It's like getting high on drugs and hearing voices that tell you things.

    All your question about can be answered with just a smoke of weed

    I mean reading the "serious" answers above can pretty much tell you how much weed that person smoked so i suggest you also do that

    trying to understand Dao is like trying to understand God, it’s the ultimate truth and no one can explain what it is. It’s something you have to understand on your own and something very few people can achieve
