Internet world virtually exists in cyber space;
Continuously evolving with variegated faces.
Without a master, all join to shape it together.
It mirrors exactly origination in Dharmadhatu.


Internet world, even though without a master, emerges virtually. It evolves continuously and instantaneously, depending completely upon all concurrent participants. The theory of mutually dependent origination of Dharmadhatu applies to all phenomena, certainly including those of the cyber space. On the other hand, the mirage-like Internet world could be taken as a mirror image of the mutually dependent origination of the whole Dharmadhatu.
