The title signifies the incessant continuity of sensory activities. The complex connections and separations of these activities are expressed with intertwining straight and curved lines. Those lines painted in different shades with varying degrees of strength must correspond to forms that had emerged in the depth of Insho's mind. In this expression, some influence of Informalism, which began in France after the end of World War II, can be deciphered. Insho had previously tried creating geometric, constructionist-like works and later gradually established his own abstract style influenced by Buddhist ideas. This painting is one of the first works in the new style.
