Hot: intensity of presence; a state of excitement; it is a contagious energy, easily spread by fire, by bodily presence, or just by visual observation. When hot energy (heat) is transferred, it does not lose its original state of energy; that only happens when it meets cool energy, such as the water in the damp patch of stone below. Then it transfers to the water and they both transcend, together, as a new, unified force, hot and cold at the same time. The rabbitbrush bush below is an example of such unification. Through unification, it inhabits a boundary space, which we call life. Clouds are perfect representations of this space. They are non-manifested fire.
