MOVING THE EMPTY SPACE
Posted on Dec.01.2011 @ 09:07AM EDT by chontri
One day there was a man who wanted to move the empty space from where he was to another place. He got a big bottle, opened the lid and filled it with the empty space, and replaced the lid. Then he carried the bottle to the place he wanted to pour out what inside the bottle. He did it. Then he took a look at what he poured out there, but he found nothing changed at all. He wondered, "What a miracle it is!" He understood what he did, smiled and walked on.
