East vs West - 5

My witness is the empty sky.
— Jack Kerouac

I long for empty spaces. They don't have to be natural or man made, just empty - empty skies, plains, plateaus overlooking empty clouds, deserted roads late at night, broken down factories and backwater roads - the wonderful feel of an empty space is the touch that God could never give.

The universe is empty, a magnificently huge expanse of nothingness. However, it should be noted that nothing is everything.

THE SEARCH FOR SELF IN THE MATRIX OF SOCIAL GOVERNANCE

We are social animals, aren't we?  Game theory has suggested that evolution has favoured humans with a cooperative gene.  However, recent research suggests that genes that lead to extortion and not cooperation are more useful for survival.  Well, I suppose extortion is as social as cooperation, after all, you need a broad selection of humans to extort if you want to be a successful capitalist.  Yes, I long for empty spaces.
