IF: Hollow

There is a saying about the "God shaped hole" in all of us. It's true for me at least.
Of course I seem to have other "holes" but now this is really getting weird.























(from http://hindsfoot.org/godsha.html)
Pascal (1623-1662) wrote in his Pensees (10.148):1

What else does this craving, and this helplessness, proclaim but that there was once in man a true happiness, of which all that now remains is the empty print and trace? This he tries in vain to fill with everything around him, seeking in things that are not there the help he cannot find in those that are, though none can help, since this infinite abyss can be filled only with an infinite and immutable object; in other words by God himself.
