On Angels and Messengers

Wednesday, July 29, 2015


At birth,
      we disembarked to a port-of-call
             full of joy and sorrow, pain and pleasure.
We may view it as a furlough,
       as a life sentence of imprisonment in a body,
             or as an all-day pass at an amusement park.
When the Captain blows the whistle,
        we stop what we're doing, return to the ship
                     and sail on.

Omniscience: a Paradox

Patience and Fortitude are the names of the two stone lions
that guard the entrance to the New York Public Library.
With the help of these guardians,
you can learn a lot -- but not everything.
For omniscience, you'll need a bigger library.

Somewhere in the Unified Field, there's a Cosmic Depository
that holds the answers to every question, including those that have yet to be asked.
Across that portal, two stone mallards squarely face one another.
With their help, there's no limit to how much you can learn.
Their names are Humility and Chutzpah.
