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? - As old as a thought of theirs. - How so? - Just so. - ....? See you later, Sir. - Have a nice dream, Sir.
