Confucianism -> Yangzi Fayan -> Asking About the Dao -> 23

Someone said:
If the study of forms and names does not accord with the Dao,
?” why is it so natural?
Yangzi said:
Why must it be forms and names?
Chess, fencing, acrobatics, and magic
are all "natural."
Seeking the natural from the great is the correct dao;
。” seeking it from the petty is the crooked dao.
