Picture a wave, in the ocean. You can see it, measure its height. Watch the sunlight refracting as it passes through. And it's there, you know what it is. It's a wave. Then it crashes on the shore....and it's gone. But the water is still there. The wave is just another way for the water to be, for a little while. The wave returns to the ocean where it came from. Where it's meant to be.
