Horror Vacui

“Horror Vacui” is Latin for “fear of empty space.” We first started noticing it, I believe, Thomas Gill, in early Mesopotamian art. It is also sometimes pointed to as a sign of mental illness. I might suggest that the Internet has helped us to a kind of MENTAL horror vacui, which is why Space Monkey has seemingly returned. And if that’s not mental, I don’t know what is.
