Between the conception
And the creation
Between the emotion
And the response
Falls the Shadow
Whatever shape existence takes – sentient or insentient, person, tree or rock – has simultaneously tangible and intangible characteristics. The tangible is the physical and visible and the intangible is shadow realm comprised of the myriad and infinite shifting relationships that bring form into being – embodied reality.
Everything that is has a shadow. It is not possible to separate dark from light, form from formlessness, the material from the immaterial. The immaterial has no agency within the world except through matter. The material has no substance or reality except through the evanescence of the immaterial.
