Thirteen Lines - Poem by Mark R Slaughter

A brain peered through stoic eyes;
Yet all it saw was rendered into
Flawed interpretation -
No honoured contemplation of a
Gluon, muon, quark of any flavour;
Nor a vision or conception of its world
Within a universe anthropic in its physical laws,
Inside a boundless multiverse.
All it gleaned and modelled
Bore parochialism well beyond belief! -
Delusional perhaps.
Survival only matters here on planet Earth -
Evolution saw to that.

    Yes. Evolution saw to it that we are eternally conditioned. Even our understanding of our conditioning is within that conditioning. Isn't there any hope of freedom from it? Thoughtful write. (Report) Reply
