The most powerful space on earth that I know of is the few inches between the seeking hand of Adam and the outstretched finger of God in Michelangelo's Sistine ceiling. Within that tiny gap of compressed space, all the power of universal consciousness bursts forth.
By giving us that gap, Michelangelo teaches us that pressurized space is infinitely more potent than full contact, in which no space exists. Instead of dissipating the explosive energy between creator and creation by depicting the moment of actual contact, the master instead gives us the unexploded intensity of the compressed space between them.
