But because the capacity to remain in the void for more than a moment imposes an intolerable strain upon a man's faculties and an almost impossible task upon his consciousness, his intellect or imagination will, in the very next moment, people this void with an idea or an image and thus end the tension. Thereafter a whole series of other ideas or images will naturally follow the primal one.
