The work shows both sides of a human being and is influenced by Xunzi's theory of the evil nature of humans. The theory (性惡說) is the view that human nature is evil. It does not mean ‘human beings are evil from birth.’ But ‘human beings tend to cultivate themselves as evil from birth.’ In order not to fall into this evil, you must practice yourself with the correct, orderly, fair, and refined norms. Sometimes, it mentions fate and says that it cannot be countered, nevertheless, it is expressed through the cracks and shapes of the wood that it is up to humans to decide whether to become swans or black swans.
