On this day. A snowy day. Snow on the ground, floating in a breeze a lone bird flying. I cannot wrap my head around that each snowflake is unique. I have wondered now for some months and I say months, because this realisation only came to me recently. Water takes on the shape of what it is in. We know this. Steam evaporating included! It morphs, goes with the flow so to speak.
Considering that to be true, could each snowflake be representing the space the water is at the moment it freezes. Does that then mean that we are getting a snap shot of the lattice of space / the air. That what holds the container of the stuff we call things.
