Did you ever imagine yourself in the tenth dimension? (Super strings vibrating in the tenth dimension create the sub atomic particles.) Suppose yourself a cube. You were born a sphere. but in growing you have morphed into a cube. Imagine your life in time stretched out behind you like the projection of a map... that's the fourth dimension! Or add one more dimension to a Mobius Strip/ A brain contains a hundred billion cells, the Milky Way a hundred billion stars. Your brain has more connections then the universe has galaxies* We speak of Nature's Laws but are they Nature's Laws or the laws of someone/some- thing else -- a supra nature -- that's controlling it? In any image lovely to the eyes a rhythm lies. ........................................ *For "universe" read "known universe".

Fragmentary Ruminations on The Natural Man and Nature
Subscribe to: Post Comments (Atom)
Amazing that the brain has a hundred billion cells and the Milky Way a hundred billion stars. So very hard to contemplate this number.......of anything in the 'known universe.'
this is wicked cool...i have read hawkings books just to be fascinated and i love how you play with these very difficult concepts...it is mind blowing really...and makes for great verse as well...
Hi Dave - you handle this type of inquiry very well in verse. With such a light touch, and a kind of inherent humor. I've never had a problem believe in natural rhythms and symmetries! I mean, they are everywhere! But dimensions now--crazy. k.
You certainly have an imagination that expands like the universe. What a ride!
Those twisted rings have always annoyed me immensely. And I can't even figure out why.
Your supra nature idea is getting quite popular now.
Nice article, thanks for sharing.
I was fascinated in the eighties by the Mobius strip...I enjoyed your ruminations, the final stanza though is not a rumination, it a powerful flash.
Carved in Lucite,
this pure work
Complexity freshly exposed with
brevity, clarity, 'spaciousness'
Repays the reader, overpays!
How do YOU do such quality so regularly?

I would also add "unknown" as I don't know what lies beynd those hundred billion stars. I love the part about the human brain. The older I get the more fascinated I am with our brains. I refuse to call it a computer or machine. It's a thing of beauty and wonder. Many thanks.
Greetings from London.
Oh went went heavy today. I love it!
Very neat, Dave, great imagination.
Thank you. So much.
Yes, the coincidence got to me. Nature - creation - never ceases to amaze.
I agree about the mind blowing! Thanks.
I agree. Absolutely. I listen to these guys sometimes and wonder if they're just having a laugh. Dimensions in its usual sense as well - still impossib;e to conceive.
Sounds like I'm about to pop! Ah, well. Much thanks.
Yup they irritate me, too.
That supra nature is becoming popular, I didn't know. Thanks for saying.
Much thans for this. I did visit you, but couldn't manage the language. Good to have your visit.
Thanks for this - especially the final flash. Much appreciated.
Again, I am i8n your debt. A much appreciated response.

I agree completely. Computer or machine sure under sells the brain!
Thanks Carl. Appreciated.
Thanks. Good to know your thoughts.
