Superstring or Silly String?
Science is poetry & poetry, science,
but fiction is a moving target
(fire was fiction – and even air –
before being hypothesized,
theorized and accepted as fact)
superstition, witchcraft, alchemy, astrology,
mathematics, biology, astronomy,
geometry, physics, chemistry, calculus
seeking answers, discovering questions
frequency, vibration, resonance
magnetism, electricity, gravity, relativity
black holes, worm holes, comets,
supernovae and shooting stars
Can you find the one that doesn’t fit?
evolution, creationism, natural laws,
natural selection, astral projection,
infinity, spacetime, the big bang
Can science and religion coexist?
synchronicity, collective unconscious,
parallel universes, time travel, string theories,
uncertainty principle, quantum entanglement,
waves & particles and wave-particle duality
(Are we one or the other? Neither or both? )
magic, mystery, riddle, enigma,
paradox, puzzle, perplexity
Who can say how many theories
may thrive on the point of a pin?
All I know (or think I do) --
C.P. Snow -- and me and you –
(we’re all the same):
“… can't win.
… can't break even.
… can't quit the game.”
