The intervals between different manifestations of the universe are important, and so are the intervals between this decaying and dying body and a baby being born somewhere else someday soon.
Time and space are not (only) what they seem to be. There are connections where we don’t see any!
Likewise, while travelling to a certain place – going there the fastest way possible or ever so slowly – we establish patterns in and of our lives and hereby determine not only where we’re gonna end up eventually but also how, i.e. what kind of a human being we will have become once we get there. The places in-between our destinations are not at all insignificant. These spaces make the journey. They are the journey, with our bodies as observers and document-producing interpreters.
