Space The Spacious and its Spaces

1 Comment


Everything around. It is in between. Faraway. Or close by.

Everything around us is space. Within this space is occupied by the existences both animate and inanimate. Maybe the non-existent as well.

Our scientists explains that space is expanding faster than we could imagine. Our light years that tries to reach the all the space we thought we knew. Much of it, is yet to be conquered like untamed conquests. As scientifically said, much of what knowledge of what we know is space. The records from histories to the current dailies and discoveries is also space. But is more, space is always a void.

ADJECTIVE (Especially of a room or building) having ample space.

What I see around me, there is always something. What everything around you is doing. You included. Your mind and action is everything in your world.

One way to think physically and mentally, we are space-taker. You call it “my space”, “my room” or “privacy”. Of course we like our own space because of different reasons. You might want to spend the time alone to invest on yourself. Perhaps, something you don’t want people to invade into as well. But who doesn’t want to be bothered? Maybe not alone, but with the person or people who you wish to share with which can be called “spending quality-time”. That would depend on anyone.

We are particular beings with a very complex claim of places and objects. We already learned to “own” something like it is a property. I would think this could be called a kind of possessiveness or selfishness (either is just as bad). Perhaps an underlying natural and animistic behavior of being territorial as the aggressive saying “two tigers never live on the same mountain” goes.

From what I observed, as things are apart from each other. It is as small as a millimeter. Or as far as many miles apart. You see that there is an obvious difference but, the comparison couldn’t be more alike.

It can be confusing and yet I find this amusing. Like water can be filled anywhere on this lovely earth. It filled the earth with the surrounding oceans and seas. Inside the land, we got rivers, lakes, ponds and such that became a bountiful paradise of animals and plants alike. From it, it is life.

There is no control of everything but, you can what is around you. Using what you can do with what inside the space you are in, it makes all the difference because you make it happen. Possibilities are infinite.

The space is a void that needs to be filled. You can create it like it is your own world. We have many little ones in this life we live in. We don’t have to look too hard to find it when it’s already there.

As you see, before I write is a blank page. It is now a page that has something in it. Writers created worlds in many voids of both reality and fantasy. You as a reader is filled with what we and I give…

All the space, both known and unknown is still there. It intertwine with yours.
