is black the new holy?

 

Echoes from Emptiness: Black Hole

 

I’ve been watching pop-science docos on telly and learning about

black holes
black matter
black energy
black flow

 

I’ve gathered that ‘black’ is the word used to denote

the invisible
the unknowable
the immeasurable
the ubiquitous

 

and I ask myself
is black the new God-word?
is black the new holy?
