We look to patterns that are complete. Beauty, as it were.
All aspects in balance in form.
The "divine" perhaps.
Now consider those areas in the individual life/awareness.
There is the empty, which produces a longing.
The pattern is incomplete.
You can see this is some "mentally" handicapped people who will react violently to disturbances in their personal framework of reality.
Other people react in subtler ways, but the act/reaction is still the same.
Look, you have an "empty" part of your room.
You think to yourself, "I should but something there".
While I am all about the expansion of individual consciousness, sometimes there is empty for a reason.
And jumping to the solution to feed the desire of filling that void of the unknown, may not be the best course of action.
