The Vacuum of the Mind

Entangled Thoughts

The Infinite Vacancy of the Mind — Photo by Philip Myrtorp on Unsplash

In the beginning, the earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters — Genesis 1:2

So, too, were we made in the likeness of the divine, our minds reflecting that same primordial vacuum — a formless expanse, timeless and silent, yet pulsing with the creative potential to imagine worlds into being…

In the quiet corners of awareness, lies a field, a void, a space where thoughts flicker in and out of being, like quantum sparks in empty place.

This vacuum, undisturbed, timeless, hugs a silence thick as dark matter; holding potential beyond our grasp, where each flash of inspiration rises.

Through quantum leaps and probabilistic dances, dimensions unfurling and collapsing, worlds wrapped in silence, darkness, stillness, where consciousness does not exist.

Yet, in the moment of their making, these thoughts blaze bright, alive, ablaze; then settle back to vacant backdrop, the timeless void from which they’re raised.

What if our world of form and matter is but one bubble in the sea, a transient glimmer in the darkness, of mind’s infinite vacancy?

We shine because we are uncertain, our brief lives flickering updates, upon the screen of presence/absence, while the quantum vacuum waits.

Entangled particles — distant dancers, linked across the void’s expanse, thoughts quantum jump to new formations, in consciousness’s cosmic dance.

Does the vacuum dream our being? Do our thoughts leave ripples in its folds? What realities exist within it, that remain for us unseen, untold?

We shine on, new thoughts ever streaming, through shadowed dimensions unexplored, one brief bubble in the quantum darkness, then rejoin the timeless vacuum’s core.
