When you think about it, silence is an extremely abstract concept. How is silence defined? Our first attempt would be to say that silence is an absence of Sound. Is that so? Sound is a vibration of particles. According to our current understanding of Physics, every particle is in constant motion. Hence, there is no such thing as silence. But still, it is such an intuitive concept. We also associate silence with inaction. Radio silence. Simon and Garfunkel even give Silence a Sound. I rather like that song. I sometimes sing it in the shower. Yes, thats when everyone hears me, but no one listens. It’s when my brain goes idle, that my passion for art and philosophy emerge. You can imagine from my relative silence on WordPress that I have been caught up in pressing matters. I couldn’t afford the necessary idleness to become creative.
Silence isn’t in my nature. I might seem calm on the outside, but my Brain is always firing. Even if I became blind and deaf, I would still not be silent. As long as I can, I will think. I would paint a world on the inside of my mind if my access to the outside were cut off. There is only silence in death. But death is just the same as silence. Only the individual dies. Life itself will not end, so long as there is a place for it. And the Universe is a very big place.
