Fill: the energy that fills space with multiple instances of the same force; abundance. To eat one’s fill is to “fill” one’s capacity to contain a certain volume of such multiplicity and to make it, in your body, one. To fill a sack with grain is to give to the sack multiplicity, not to replace its capacity with substance. That is the effect of filling, of course, and takes on the same word (fill), but remains a secondary effect. Another form of “fill” is “plenty”. When one asks, “How much bread do you have?” and the answer is “plenty”, it means abundance. From it, one can eat one’s fill without demising the force itself. The folk concept of an Irish stewpot, that produces endless food forever, comes from the power of fullness.
