In this chapter, the protagonist explains that he has resolved all of his problems with Tsingtao, and that he no longer wishes to work for him. He explains that the real reason he repeatedly refused to cooperate with him was because of the "desperate and lifeless beauty" in his designs, and this hurt the woman who worked for him, the famous "little fairy." The woman, in order to participate in the design, abandoned her ego, and devoted herself entirely to interpreting the "cold goddess" in the designs. The woman was unable to get out of the situation, and fell into depression, for a time. She was also unable to make the "shining world" cooperate with the world of philos. Tsengtao's sister, the "lost and found" woman, was the one who saved him from the predicament. The protagonist is not convinced that this is true, for he believes that human nature is not always easy to change, and it is natural for a bird to want to escape its cage.
