* Vacuum–busting *
Abhorrence of vacuums on all different levels
(metaphysical, reality and other levels)
Vacuums – metaphysical or otherwise – are abhorred7
Nature abhors a vacuum. And it presumably abhors a
‘vacuum of principles,’ as well.
So, ‘initially,’ if ‘initially’ can be said to exist, we are faced with a potential ‘vacuum’ situation.
NOTES by KHALIL
7 The Physical Vacuum: This ‘abhorrence,’ as it were, can be allegorized as ‘negative pressure.’ A vacuum exerts a ‘pull’ on adjacent matter and thereby seeks its own obliteration. The greater the relative vacuum, the greater the negative pressure, the greater the ‘abhorrence,’ and the more likely the vacuum is to obliterate itself.
The vacuum–breaker principle was quest for a possibility
of a principle – or embryonic Quest for Potential∞.
And perhaps, reacting to a potential VACUUM situation,
Q4P then ultimately achieves a ‘life of its own,’ feeding upon itself, looping around itself billions upon billions of times, seeking to achieve critical mass… and eventually apparently doing so, first metaphysically, and then in full–blown reality.
