Since my last post, I’ve also been experimenting with other free/pay sites. I’m having problems as every site seems to have a different program and system that basically performs the same tasks. I’m also in "no-mans land" as far as the “language” and terminology that each use. Presently I’m more comfortable with a site that has a built in editor, but then I’m also limited to the templates I can use.
I was working on my simple PBwiki site and I was trying to organize some of the old message board posts for the new site. PBwiki has both a site search and a tag search option and I was having difficulty trying to place specific tags to each post. I was finding that while each post appears to be different, they are all connected and similar, and that categories and tags over lapped.
While all this was going on I was also doing some more thinking about the five elements, Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Ether. As I was going over some old posts and I came across something that I wrote a few years ago when I was working with the Native medicine wheel. I got that
….. Ether is another word for space…… It is the space that things occupy when they are created, and it is also the space for things that are yet to be created. It is the space between the things that are, and the things that are not. It gives Form its definition.
The physical example at the time was the medicine wheel and the stones that made it up. Each stone was occupying a space and while that was important, what was also important was the space that separated one stone from another. This so-called "empty" space that separated one stone from another, was open to receive another stone or whatever was going to be created to move into that open space.
We generally consider dense physical objects as having matter and occupying space, but all the elements occupy space. And even those things that we deem to be physically dense are actually made up of trillions upon trillions of atoms that all have vast spaces between them. The actual space that these atoms occupy is minuscule to the perceived illusion of its form. These atoms, while having a physical form are also made up of energy.
Another thing I was working on was Darkness and Light .. Yin and yang… etc etc..
“While darkness is the opposite of Light…. it is also the absence of light.”……."Darkness draws light into creation."
