In the television series Star Trek, members of the Star Ship Enterprise , who live constantly on the edge of daring and danger, encounter the occasional worm hole. It’s supposed to be based on actual hypotheses of astro-physics and entertains the idea that space might be shaped and contorted by gravity. In Star Trek ships enter these spatial corridors as a train goes through a tunnel, and the worm hole leads the crew from here to there, a “there” in which wild, stirring adventures happen.
My koi picture is shot through with holes and corridors of a different kind. Hungry fish open their mouths and beckon food inside. In the real pond small objects sometimes get sucked into the vortex also (to be spat out after). But small things could disappear in there. And in imagination’s pond — what might these koi draw into their hungry mouths? Dreams perhaps?
When I look at the koi pond, I can believe that space might be scattered through with worm holes — ones that could be hungry too! — like the koi.
