you may also wish to comment on apparent or illusionary voids (for want of a better term) - The perceptional path through which we become aware of are surroundings is comprised of two distinct neurological processes. The first occurs when the eye relays impulses to the visual cortex and the second occurs when this information is interpreted by the frontal lobes (our consciousness). The image that arrives at the visual cortex is a complete facsimile of the field of vision ie it contains a perfect representation of what is physically there. Illusionary voids occur when we interpret this information in a non perfect way. We may be unaware of certain aspects of our surrounds because of assumptions we make from past experiences (past experiences being the template by which we compare new images with in order to make sense of them). Thus, an object may actually be in our visual field but we fail to perceive it consciously. However, this object may still exert an emotive influence (the "light"). On detailed inspection these "illusionary objects" become apparent but for most of the time they are consciously "invisible" and thus they are (or they exist in) a metaphorical void whilst still influencing the viewer.
