HOW OLD?
Posted on Dec.21.2011 @ 07:28AM EDT by chontri

Yesterday evening, there was a visitor who paid CT a visit.
After couple of sips of green tea, he made a question like this:

- How old are you, Sir?
- As old as the empty space.
- ...? How so?
- Just so.
- How old is the Great Creator as people created him?

- Just so.
- ....? See you later, Sir.
- Have a nice dream, Sir.
