Two Ways To Think About Nothing : Krulwich Wonders… : NPR

“We are surrounded by Nothing. Everywhere we go, we have no idea what we’re not seeing. We don’t know what gravitational fields look like, what dark matter looks like, what quantum foam looks like, what de Kooning’s drawing looked like, but what the scientists and the artists are telling us, in their very different ways, is that if we lean in, and pay very close attention, sometimes what looks like Nothing is the best place to find the most interesting…somethings.”

//A Buddhist sense of emptiness seems to me to be similar, an emptiness full of possibility and time.  -lw
