Life is created in the empty spaces-
those points and places between the concrete
particles that mark existence.
This emptiness is the realm of the Soul for it contains the abstraction
before the formation, where all things are possible.
I was thinking of atoms the other day. Atoms are mostly empty space, however we define an atom (and eventually ourselves) but the tiny particles that exist in this space. Proportionally, this space, though, is much larger than the particles.
So, what is really of greater substance-the particles or the space?
It made me think we define life in a similar way. We think the concrete points along the way are what define us. Perhaps, life actually unfolds in that empty space- the places between the concrete- because these spaces contain all the possibilities of what may become.
Maybe we should focus less on our concrete, defining points and focus a bit more on the potential space that contains them all.
