Lightbulb Swinging on a Star

"Swinging on a Star" is an American pop standard with music composed by Jimmy Van Heusen and lyrics by Johnny Burke.. It was sung by Bing Crosby in the 1944 film Going My Way, winning an Academy Award for Best Original Song that year, and has been recorded by numerous artists since then...
Mind is described as being "space-like" and "illusion-like." Mind is space-like in the sense that it is not physically obstructive. It has no qualities which would prevent it to exist. Mind is illusion-like in the sense that it is empty of inherent existence.. This does not mean it does not exist, it means that it exists in a manner that is counter to our ordinary way of misperceiving how phenomena exist, according to Buddhism. When the mind is itself cognized properly, without misperceiving its mode of existence, it appears to exist like an illusion. There is a big difference however between being "space and illusion" and being "space-like" and "illusion-like." Mind is not composed of space, it just shares some descriptive similarities to space...
