If there is something you are missing, a "hole in your chest," then perhaps you have touched upon a greater human need, part of the internal structure
of a healthy human.
Here is my take, and this is the first time I'm trying to express it, so please forgive me if the words are in any way incomplete or awkward:
In the terms of the ancient Greeks - all things come from the Monad, the "stable oneness." The circle represents this shape, and holds within it all
things. This ancient geometrical philosophy holds a great truth. Apply some basic Set Theory and allow for a circle to be infinite (the Unbounded
Whole?) and you have the possibility of a greater Oneness to which we all belong - circles of sets within circles of sets within the Great Infinite
IF (and this theory is unproven) something like the Holographic Theory of the Universe is in play, then not only are we encompassed ultimately by the
"Source of All Form" (the Greek idea of the circle again), we, in our small selves, are also a Circle in essence - the whole lies within each part.
We are intimately and completely connected to this Whole.
But then we try on our human perceptions, emotions and failings, and box this Wholeness which we intuitively long for into structures: cathedrals,
temples, statues, doctrines, etc., that only touch the numinous, and can never fully encompass it. At best our structures can attempt to hold a
mirror to it and reflect the Wholeness within, at worst, they corrupt it entirely, and in any case, the box that surrounds is not the Whole itself,
for the Circle holds all shapes and all forms and cannot Itself be contained.
If there is a hole in your chest, could it be in the shape of a Circle? Perhaps you seek communion with Wholeness and are trying to find the right
shape of it? If that is the case, it is already resonating inside you and has never been outside at all (ETA - technically it is both without and
within, but the key to finding it is ultimately within...) Perhaps you will find a Whole in your chest, instead.
Food for thought, only - I have no interest in convincing you of anything or getting into a big discussion over it.
Now, as to UFOlogy, it requires no belief on my part. I saw something and I am curious as to what it is - that leads to exploration of what is a very
strange and elusive phenomenon. Perhaps some would like this to take the place of religion, to turn it into another Box to put the sought-after
Wholeness into, but for myself, not so much. I seek the truth in order to expand my sense of the Whole - to better understand the nature of reality,
and thus to better reflect within myself that Wholeness...
I hope that makes somewhat of sense. If not...*shrugs*
peace (and I truly wish you that),
