Space is like the mind. If it was not there we would be in big trouble, but where is it? Where does it go and where does it come from? When we place something somewhere, what happens to the displaced space? Does it move? What happened to the space that used to surround the seed when it grows into a tree? It is a mystery. It is also the closest metaphor we have to technically describing limitlessness and non-duality.
