rodrick rajive lal's insight:
Dead space is a silent but deadly killer of initiative and success in business and life. Umberto Eco the expert on semiotics referred to Dead Space when he used the word Interstices. The idea is to fill up the empty spaces in our lives by doing something constructive. Take for example the time it takes for your friend to ascend to your flat using the elevator while you wait for him at the top. That is an interstice that you can fill up by writing something. If we were to remove the empty space from the whole universe, then theortically at least, the whole universe can be compressed to the size of an orange!
