RE: The Fifth Element- 50-word challenge

in #fiftywords3 years ago

Ohhh, interesting! I had to go look up quintessence, and there are actually a number of definitions. But this one probably makes the most sense:

a hypothetical form of dark energy, postulated to explain the accelerating universe.

I would love to hear a little more about your thoughts behind this piece.

The words you've chosen for this story are so rich and beautiful.

Thank you @jayna! I think when I pictured the word "space" in my mind I wanted to capture what we never think of or see... I believe in the five energies or elements: Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Spirit or Space.
Spirit, or Space, (the fifth element/quintessence) is what some others may actually consider to be God... The 'All' of everything, even in the dark void, the so-called emptiness in between the things we can see... that space of emptiness where all things begin and end.

Sorry for the delay in responding. Thank you for the wonderful explanation. (Lifts jaw up off floor.) This is amazing. I love the fact that you dealt with this incredible complex topic in a 50 word short story. And it's very well done!

Thanks for saying so @jayna... I am happy that you enjoyed it! :)
