SHADOW

***

Only one shadow

Dante’s body blocks the light

Virgil: no body

***

NOTE: Virgil has no body, so he has no shadow; nevertheless, he can feel pain, cold, heat, etc. God makes him able to feel these things despite his lacking a body. Many things we will never understand. We can know the FACT, but not the WHY. Mysteries exist.
