The Flow and Void

What are the Flow and Void?

To a farmer, the Flow is a benevolent force that grants him steady rain and a good crop, and the Void is something to curse in case of drought. To a soldier, the Flow might protect him, or else imbue the righteous with the power to overcome the wicked, while the Void would be where his enemies go once vanquished. To a musician, the Flow is the source of his magic, turning sound into something more. The Void, by contrast, is simply the absence of sound, of music, of life.

To a scholar, the Flow is an infinite and uncontainable kinetic energy, which exists within and around us, in the spaces between spaces, in the unseeable locations in our world. One might even say our world is merely a container for that uncontainable force, in the same way that an ocean both contains water, and is water. Another description favored by the Knonks is that life is a shadow cast on a screen – the Flow is both the screen and the light casting the shadow. A more academic notion suggest that life is an infinite sheet of thinnest parchment- made of, held together by, and saturated with the Flow, and that the void is what both are suspended in. The void is both infinite and non-existent. Like shadow, it appears real, but in fact is simply absence itself, and is therefore unimaginable.
