Even Less Than You Thought


   by Reb Gutman Locks  

 

     If we could look at a solid stone with a very good microscope, we would see that it is not the solid object we thought it was. We would see that it is made up of many millions of molecules, and (according to science) 99.9% empty space.

     If we could look at those atoms with a good enough microscope, we would see that those tiny atoms are also not solid, not at all. Each atom is made up of many millions of quarks, and what science says is 99.9% empty space.

     And if we could look at the quarks with a good enough microscope, we would see that they too are not solid, but each is made up of many millions of gluons, and what science says is 99.9% empty space.

     If we could go on and on, we would see that all matter from the largest to the smallest is not solid, not at all, but rather is being made up of what science says is 99.9% empty space.  

     And what does the Torah say all matter is made of? Everything is made of nothing! Matter is just formation being held in position by Will. And if or when that Will releases its pressure on matter, all matter will cease, leaving just the empty space where that matter was sitting. This is called yesh me'ayin, something from nothing. All creation is, and always has been, made yesh me'ayin.   

     All created existence is Hashem holding it in its form. And if, or when He chooses, He would release His urge, all form would cease leaving just the empty space where it was located. Even the "empty" space would "unfold" leaving just the Place where it was sitting.

    Now we are getting a better idea of just how dense (or un-dense) that first stone must have been… or are we?
