Go to PART 1

The brain is locked in total darkness, of course, children, says the voice. It floats in a clear liquid inside the skull, never in the light. And yet the world it constructs in the mind is full of light. It brims with color and movement. So how, children, does the brain, which lives without a spark of light, build for us a world full of light?

Anthony Doerr, All The Light We Cannot See, Pg 48.

Is there anyplace I can go to avoid your Spirit? To be out of your sight?
If I climb to the sky, you’re there! If I go underground, you’re there!
If I flew on morning’s wings to the far western horizon,
You’d find me in a minute — you’re already there waiting!
Then I said to myself, “Oh, he even sees me in the dark! At night I’m immersed in the light!”
It’s a fact: darkness isn’t dark to you; night and day, darkness and light, they’re all the same to you.

Psalm 139:7-12, MSG.

If you know your Psalms well (and it is totally fine if you don’t), the next verse is that famous one that says, “Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb.”

Another dark place from in which light is born.
