The divide

This oneness between two realms, divided, yet connected through a liminal space, is not dissimilar from what Ibn Arabi would later describe as the barzakh. The barzakh, or the divide, is a mental construct, an intangible entity that is understood but not witnessed, known but not realized. It is a presence between two platforms that resides intellectually, not physically, pertaining to its unique nature.
