Our bodies are made of atoms, and atoms are 99.999999999999% empty space. So, our bodies are empty space. Our loved ones, and our possessions are empty space. So why do we cling so tightly to our body and possessions which are made of empty space? How can we cling so tightly as our bodies are empty space. The physical world is empty space, yet we act as if it is solid. Things are relative, partially created by our minds; the minds that label and name. When we were very small and learning language, we would say, “this is called mother.” Later with familiarity we say, “this is mother.” That is where we fall off the deep end!
