Sometimes you go for a long drive and the gas gets low. If you go too long you start to worry. What if there isn't a gas station near? What if you run out of gas? What if you hit EMPTY?

What is emptiness? It is the opposite of full. We all desire to be full. If we don't get enough food, we aren't full. And we all want to be full. Emptiness is a lack of something. It is longing for something that isn't there.

We all have a strange aversion to emptiness. It is a kind of darkness. An abscence of light. We hate it. It is scary. It mean nothingness. Falling endlessly. Not bottom. Frightening. Blank.
