The True Nature of the Vacuum
printed on Giclée Hahnemühle Photo Rag
The vacuum of deep space is not, in fact, empty at all. As we reduce the size of things to the tiniest possible scale, way past the size of the atom or indeed the electron, all the way down to the Planck Distance - the smallest distance imaginable - space itself becomes granular, like rice pudding. These grains of space, the quantum foam, spring into and out of existence instantaneously.
Thus the so-called ‘vacuum’ is replete with activity and exerts a pressure on the very fabric of reality. This pressure, in fact, has actually been measured. These are the quantum bubbles out of which everything is made.
And those alien forms that float within the bubbles? It is true that even the imagination is made of quantum foam.
‘Everything is a bubble and anything that
is not a bubble is confined within a bubble.
Even nothingness is a bubble.
