Also, what about half-formed ideas, impressions, memories, vague feelings, which come and go, of which I am only partially aware - do they just drift in and out of the container?
AL, FR, LiC and BT, it's good you can see it makes some
sense to you all, not much point, droning on with big posts unless they are useful
from personal application I know that container theory, while just a way to look at it all, can add much needed clarity and value to the creative source and us as creators.
If I think about the statue of liberty and see it in my mind, that is inside the container but it doesn't exist
inside the container until I choose to render it completely in the physical reality that is inside the container. Being inside the container and existing inside the physical reality inside the container
are different things, but everything is inside, there is and can never be anything outside.
You are the container.
