Distance is a space, or distance is a feeling, or it is something out of this world that we cannot think of. Something which, mankind, in our ignorant, perfect arrogance, can never comprehend?
Distance, as one may say, is something that keeps two things apart, or something that is used to measure the difference of two objects in the physical mean. You can always say that, a thing and another, is different, separated by a millimeter or a meter. And yet, that may not be the case, if we see it in a more abstract view, are they really that far apart?
Of course, referring to solid, stationary subjects that are not alive with feel, physical distance means everything. But in two feeling, sentient beings (read. HUMANS), is this measurement absolute? Two person, can be separated by the greatest of all distance in the world, and yet be closer than ever; they can be stuck together and still be so distant to each other. The distance of distance, is a vague thing to deal with.
Human life, each of them, is like a line on its own. The line moves, and somewhere in the finite life, the lines intercept, tangle and forms a bond. How much the line entwines, is determined by nothing more than the abstract distance of the peoples, the line-mover.
The bonds, the tangling, the interceptions come and go, as peoples do in each others' life. When people goes, how intact the bond will be, relies totally on the conceptual distance between the lines that formed the bond. When the distance between these minds are as close as they can get, the bonds will hold, no matter the lines move in different direction or in a parallel manner. If the distance of the minds are so remote to each other, the lines that formed the bonds will break, torn apart as soon as the lines start to split. Even if the lines moves and overlaps each other, the immeasurable distance remains, and they are hold apart.
So, how can we measure distance, how do we answer to it, to the whys, whats, and wheres of distance? Do we have an answer? That is a question that, most probably, as answerable as whether a fire or phoenix, came first...
