The sparse opening page has the following quote from Tao Te Ching:
Something amorphous and consummate
existed before Heaven and Earth.
Standing alone, unaltering.
Going everywhere, yet unthreatened
It can be considered the Mother of the World
I don't know it's name, so I designate it, 'Tao'
Compelled to consider it, name it 'the Great'
Beyond that, you only get a simple description of the game -- "An exploration-puzzle game on an uninhabited island" -- and a goal for getting the game released across multiple platforms in late 2011. Myst, by way of philosophical taoism, perhaps?
