Logic ties you in to its limitations
Rules bind you to the road
Computers train you to compute
Eventually that may be all you can do.
Is that the way you want to go?
A human robotic system of precision,
for whom & for what?
We have been perfected, to react
in the standard way.
All of this can happen,
but if you realize
You can really give it all up.
Competition lays a million miles away.
Freedom is you and bondage
is cast aside.
Those mind games you held so dear,
are just faded memories.
Those fears, those worries
leave you like a teardrop
rolling down upon your smile.
Your laughter burst out
like a lion returning to the jungle.
Or a child, happy and playful,
in the rumble of now.
Enjoy the sandcastles
even as they tumble.

Step off my friend,
Step off he said to me.
Step into a midnight sky.
A sea of stars,
Step off my friend and see.

When ground below has long since passed,
When Earth and sky are gone.
We'll soar upon the solar wind,
Through time and space,
beyond.

There's more.

But I can't quite bring it to mind.

And, I was remiss, thank you.

Heedless yet the river flows
where it comes from and where it goes
nobody knows.
But still it is always there
ready to sprout.
Whatever our stance
she is always ready
to help us out.

Phage is not a jerk.

He contributes a lot to the checks and balances in these forums.

The interment can be a very dangerous place and the fact he argues against fringe ideas scientifically?

Well obviously and historically people do take advantage of that issue and I could site several incidences w
here death and abuse as involved (both physical and psychological).

To be apparent I hope that when Albert Einstein initially presented his Theory of Relativity those present did not drop their drawers and show him there backside.

When it comes to ATS the good news is we do not have a Smiley like that.

When it comes to getting involved in either the fields of Science or Philosophy, professionally. Get ready to be told off if you express an opinion.

WE all have bad days, good days and in relation to how to we react to each other?

Sometimes there is a degree of transference.

I also have had problems with that and to be clear nobody in this forum is perfect.

Cool, poetry battle!
I'm in!

Should we pretend
That this is nothing more than
A coincidence again
Should I brush it aside
And not analyse
All the things that become obvious in hindsight
Should we pretend
This hasn't happened again
And just hope for a happy ending
Should I ignore the fact
That this is all an act
And once again you are hiding something

Me - mid to late 90s
