Dreamers of the Day

"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that all was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, and make it possible." -T.E. Lawrence, "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom"

Space V

I have chosen the human and observed the human to define space. Yes, it does meet the requirements of possessing life, seen characteristics as well as unseen characteristics. As you may have realized so far, each requirement is based on the fact that I am human, but that is all I have. I cannot escape that fact. I say all of this to reveal another point in which I have chosen the human. The human is the only living matter that will become something it was not meant to be. For instance, the human can take flight, but it has no wings. The human will swim for hours, even days, but does not have gills. The human will even plot acts of destruction for other living things when its greatest expression is life itself. The human will attempt to escape the limitations of space, seen or unseen, in remarkable ways only to find more limitations. The human is constantly testing its limitations.

Therefore, in order to understand the limitations of the human and its life, one must go back and take a second look at humanity. One must ponder the immaterial and material. Yes, these sections are two, completely different sections. There is nothing similar. Yet, there is one point in which the immaterial and material meet which is crucial in defining both seen space and unseen space.

The point at which the immaterial and material intersect, the seen and the unseen intersect, are the same point. It seems that this point is found in the human ability to make a choice...

You've been so prolific, Jason! That's a whole lot to read. :)

I want to have a dialogue about all this, but it seems like this blog series is gonna be more lengthy than previous ones. So, I'm gonna wait for more thought progression. Keep it coming! :)
