Return to the essence.
It is theorized that a vast majority of our universe is empty space. According to the publication Symmetry, there’s empty space between the electrons and the nucleus which make up atoms (the building blocks to everything we see and touch). If that empty space were to be erased, a human could essentially fit into a particle of dust. The entire human race could fit in something as small as an ice cube. So what is it really that makes us who we are? Surely our existence isn’t governed by some empty space. If all we were was empty space, what a grim world it would be. I like to think what makes us human – the essence of who we really are – are our passions along with our likes, dislikes, etc. Our hopes and dreams fill that empty space until it’s over flowing with the possibility of humanity. I like to think our hearts beat every day for more than just the single reason of keeping us alive. We are meant for so much more than just taking up space with even more…..well, space. Each of us are made of unique facets that make us who we truly are. The next person who you see, look beyond the externality of what you see. Look for that essence. Look for what makes them who they really are. Maybe this will lead to a bridge between one person’s empty space with another. One soul to another.
