I’ve heard about the Void. And I’ve always wanted to enter it. Quite Twilight Zone-ish. The problem is when I tried to find the Void online I came up with:
a space with nothing in it http://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/english/void
3.as in 4 dimensional(bigger on the inside than on the outside) http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=void
a person with no ambition, goals, or meaning in life http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=void
And a whole bunch of other meanings, some of which are too disgusting to mention or even describe. Even think about.
The problem is, I don’t trust the internet. Anyone can put anything on the internet. While it is like a self correcting device there’s a lag time before the correctingness sets in. I’m sure like any other system, there’s a percentage that is never corrected. What happens if you follow that error plagued entry for the rest of your life? There should be a name for it – thinking that an error is actually reliable information. After all, fool me once…
I looked some more and even found a magazine about the Void. But still, I couldn’t find the Void. As G.W. prophetically said, “There’s an old saying in Tennessee — I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again.” http://www.goodreads.com/quotes/6436-there-s-an-old-saying-in-tennessee-i-know-it-s
It’s quite amazing how powerful words are both literally and figuratively. Kind of like using words to write poetry. I wonder if that has ever been done before.
I decided it was better for me (and being a humanitarian) and for others that I just not enter the Void. After all, that’s always the danger. Who knows what’s on the other side of the door? Especially when entering the Void.
