What is the possibility of finding something into nothing? Where nothing assume a dazzling void. Empty and disorientating. Imagine holding a compass being in reverse polarity state. It is making me nervous because this is the start of a fly away condition. How far away?

What kind of motions? Circular I assume. But the compass is giving out erratic data. It jumps around, it spins like it is on a pole.

What is the possibility of finding something into nothing? One move forward and the void becomes a quantum of forms popping up: tunnels, funnels, alleys, cones, honeycombs, lattices and spirals. All ethereal and compact. An ecstatic nimbus is floating above me. The void loses its smoothness, it becomes less and less disorientating.

As I am getting closer more forms start to appear: gratings, layers, axes, symmetries and asymmetries. Is my vision now enlarged or narrowed? I find myself between so many directions.

Zoom in or zoom out? How this infinity should be treated? What is this void I find myself within, is it a space yet to come, a form of negation, a visual hallucination or simply non-existence? My compass still jumps around. It doesn’t matter, now I have some landmarks.

The void makes an excellent landmark. BOOMERANG!
