Science Friday

Wisdom is often found between the covers.


1. Matter Fundamentalism:
Matter is all there is.
Behind phenomena
there is no Other
with Whom to connect.

2.  Classical Mysticism:
Every instant of our life
is an exercise in merging
with an ever-present Mystery
that today's scientists
are impotent to discern.

3. Classical Tantra:
Every glance is Her Glance
Every touch Her Touch
Every smell is Her sexual attractant
Every meeting a teaching.

4. Quantum Tantra:
For millennia we've played in the shallows
Our sciences mere baby steps
With the advent of quantum reality
Get ready to taste Nature's depths.

5. Agnostic:
Until I have examined the other 10 billion possibilities I claim ignorance.

Ladies and Gentlemen, place your bets. "Agnostic" has just walked away from the table.

Agnostic has walked away from the table for which a descriptor is not in our power to discern.

I like the concision of your poem, capturing your philosophy in just a few words. I will link to it from my blog at
