Consider: Why do we need this empty space, and how does the universe, and love fits into this empty space?

I am not sure if it is empty. We just do not know what is there.

@ Alcibiades: It is a puzzle, but perhaps one day we will figure it out! Thank you.

Great quetion Vee.

Looked at a documentary a while ago. Theres a VERY deep mine shaft in Britainwhere a bunch of government funded scientists are looking for dark energy and dark matter.

They believe for the maths of how the universe started to work there MUST be an energy and substance that we cant yet quantify. Apparently this very deep mine shaft provides an area where theres no or little interference from radio waves etc.

Now this isnt some group of crackpot scientists funded by some weird meglomaniac,this is the British government spending millions on this and employing some of the brightest minds in the world.

Im not much of a science buff but the question fascinates me.We think this world of ours is SO SOLID and REAL. In fact its made of stuff we still donrt really understand and theres more fresh air or something else between that STUFF than most of us imagine.

And where does Love and God fit into this. I imagine He fills the empty gaps and the solid matter with no more or less than Himself.

You must be referring to the Neutrino Detector at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory

@ Graham Cook: I agree. There is substance in what you are saying, and none of us really knows what is out there, and I can appreciate the challenges that lie ahead for these British Scientists. Thank you.

empty space is a misnomer, the void is actually full but at rest
a philosophical view instead of scientific theory.

What do think it is full with, and why is it the resting, and what do you think we need to be on the alert for, if any? What do you think will happen after the rest period is over? Thank you.

some say space as the eternal is full of spirit, life we as yet are unable to perceive. and as with breathing after the inhale or rest there comes the exhale or activity/manifestation of matter, the opposite pole of spirit. maybe, be on the alert for the theory that space is empty and that our universe is in an active phase.
