"act-ING" with neither actor nor act

Our every self-conscious act is a REACTION to a stimulus (via the sensory mechanism).

Therefore WU WEI means "not-REacting,"

And WEI WU WEI means acting (that is) "not-REacting,"

Which is spontaneous acting,

Which is non-volitional acting,

Which is the essence of Taoism.

---Wei Wu Wei
