So it begins, In the beginning there was thought
A thought to create my escape from this state
Of mind and being, evolving beyond
Only that which I see, to that which I dream
I did not create the laws, they are a part of me
Bound to my being, not bound by anything
Illuminated by the light which I have made
Extracted from the darkness, being it's origin
I think therefore I am
I will, with will that I speak
Patterns of life within my tones
Balanced by death in undertones, though bleak
You question your existence
Yet, fail to comprehend all I am
Follow for a moment
Everything good exists
Even the bad by my own hand
Does my left hand not know
What my right is doing?
Or is the left ticking away
While I remember my past time an again?
Within my right, which is right now
Moving forward into present-future by demand
You're an extension of who I am
With your will and mind, you'll create as I have
I saw the solution to a problem I created
Calculated the risks and split into fragments
Multiple imaginations designing within my imagination
Working together to bring order to my once chaotic existence
Free will isn't free, even I dreamed of evolution
Your life is the key, to an ascending revolution
I love myself enough to grow an purge the pain
You exist in the purging moments
Your mission, should you except
Is that you must do the same

Poet's Notes about The Poem
In number theory, (a perfect number) is a positive integer that is equal to the sum of its proper positive divisors, that is, the sum of its positive divisors excluding the number itself (also known as its aliquot sum) . Equivalently, a perfect number is a number that is half the sum of all of its positive divisors (including itself) 6 would be the starting point in this series
A (triangular number) or triangle number counts the objects that can form an equilateral triangle. A triangular number is the number of dots composing a triangle with n dots on a side, and is equal to the sum of the n natural numbers from 1 to? The sequence of triangular numbers can start in a series being 1,3,6,10,15,21,28 and so on and so forth.
To clear this up I already had 1 person ask in an e-mail if it had to do with free masons or the number of the beast which I got a good chuckle at but no it doesn't.
I have no particular belief system other than in truth and I believe multiple truths can simultaneously exist running parallel with each other at the same time but also sometimes truths like everything over time become more and more convoluted.
And to clear it up the actual number of the beast isn't 666 like some people might like you to believe it is (Six hundred threescore and six) 600/60/6 do the research and find out for yourself. I am just a guy that loves numbers and how they interact. Also to dispel any other ideas people may get let me put and end to that by bestowing some more current knowledge upon you.
A fragment from the oldest surviving copy of the New Testament, dating to the Third century, gives the more mundane 616 as the mark of the Antichrist. Where more conventional versions of the Bible give 666 as the “number of the beast, ” or the sign of the anti-Christ whose coming is predicted in the book’s apocalyptic verses, the older version uses the Greek letters signifying 616.
“This is very early confirmation of that number, earlier than any other text we’ve found of that passage, ” Dr. Aitken said. “It’s probably about 100 years before any other version.”
As well the world was created in 6 days according the current bible we have at our disposal for right now.
In the matrix there is a scene where Neo = the 1(one) talks to the
Architect being the creator where the architect says... The matrix is older than you know. I prefer counting from the emergence of one integral anomaly to the emergence of the next, in which case, this is the sixth version.
To which Neo responds... (in one of the monitors that has calculated an infinite number of responses he could give) There were 5 created before me? Along with there are only two possible explanations: either no one told me, or no one knows.
That being said this is my 66Th poem on this site and I just love number & word play.6 is one of my favorite numbers
