Space

Space, like time, is a state of consciousness. It is not perceived like all other things, both material and immaterial, which are felt due to vibrations. Even though we have the sensation of perceiving space, really our impression is of the things that are contained in it. In this way, we can understand that who gives validity to space is the matter or the bodies that are contained in it. As its definition says: Physical environment in which bodies and movements are located, and which is usually characterized as homogeneous, continuous, three-dimensional and unlimited.

Space has no figure and it seems that it cannot be defined in any other way than negation. Like Time, it has elicited a great diversity of scientific and philosophical views, from Plato, Descartes, Newton, Leibnitz, Kant, and many others. And it is that, if there were a place that did not contain anything, only empty, our objective senses would not be able to understand it.

I imagine being in the middle of the surface of the ocean, in a place without islands in sight, without waves, without wind, without noise, without smell, with a sky without any stars. The sense of distance, orientation, time, etc. is surely lost. Although both space and time are not material realities, and that they are relative to each other, a product of our consciousness, we cannot ignore the influence they have on our physical body, and that they are part of our human condition, therefore we cannot we can act as if they don’t exist.

But on the other hand, we cannot absolutely depend on time and space for our lives, but we must seek balance with the spiritual, and that can be achieved by developing our subliminal capacities, making meditative experiences with the infinite and the timeless.
