& it might as well be the size of a warehouse. or the town of charlotte. or the carolina mountain acres. or the united states. the western hemisphere. or both hemispheres. the planet. and moon. the sun. even the solar system. even the galaxy. the galaxy cluster! the cluster of galaxy clusters! the universe! but though it has no limits in this way, in the feeling of its size, and of its importance, it is confined to a certain physical space, that is to say, everywhere not there is unsafe for the act of creation. everything not done in there is vulnerable to the attack. to the interruption. to the assault. to the resistance. to the demands. to the needs. to the everything not. here is the space but having the space sharply then defines non-space. and so you see, once the space has been made the other 99.99% space that you inhabit becomes no space. So by creating space you actually lessen space. The key there here then is to have no space, not even a walk-in closet, but “to adapt,” they say. That is, to be able to work & create under the pressures of others and their demands and their things & disrespect and fruitless entertainments & distractions and smart phones and cat videos. You may grow dizzy. You may fall ill. But in the process you adapt and retain the universe as yours though trying it always is regardless of the level of abundance. Where there are people there will be no hope for you. Neither this nor that, not the pounding drum nor the empty vibration emitting from an absent human captivated by mindless pleasures on their small screen simultaneously demanding so much. Click. Clank. Clock, hopeless.
