In this chapter, the narrator tries to convince the reader that it is not the actions of one person that have made the story so well known. He argues that the narrator was too trusting of certain people and that they took advantage of the fact that he showed off his wealth in his essay. The narrator argues that he is content with his status quo. He asks the god of water what guidance he can give him if he is confused. The god says that he can teach him how to understand if he would love to. The jade is used as a medium for the priest to communicate with the water. He says that the jade connects the spirits of the people with the god. He also says that water in different forms has various forms. On the one hand, water and clouds are equal, but on the other hand, they can only be separated by the boundless sky. If you do not trust someone, you may be tempted to ignore those who are trustworthy.
