Ideas evolving

Oblivion to awareness

forms set in parallel

each to the other

everything subliminal

until experienced.

And explanation has nothing to say

of the birth of consciousness

presenting as a precondition

for evolution to be perceived

as the fact that made it.

Possibility

Everywhere and nowhere

A repository of all things

actual and hypothetical.

A force to reckon with

turning upon each moment

– inevitabilities from ineffabilities;

everything replete

of what is to be

and not to be.

 

Mike Laidler

 

 

Quantum selves

Many worlds, many paths
– probabilities cast into being.
Multiple selves waiting to be observed
– fixed by our inner gaze.
The mystery of entanglement
– an image of what we might be
emerging from the shadow of what we were.

Mike Laidler

Consciousness first

Would we know that consciousness exists

without being conscious first?

Come to think of it

would we know that anything exists

– including thought?

Therefore, why believe

that neural operations in the brain

somehow gauge its reality

by being different

and indifferent?

Discovery

Did nature give us a brain

to gain a mind in return?

So who’s the proud owner?

Does the brain tell us what to do

– organising our actions and decisions

formulating our ideas, concepts, and reasons

– the engine of thinking, knowing and memory

orientating scientific understandings

in the ‘neurological mind’

in order to discover

what it is doing?

Purpose

We can’t see a purpose to existence

in all its purposeless causes

yet we can tell that purpose exists:

that it is ‘up and running’

here, on earth

and that life procures purposes

in an evolving nature

set in an expanding universe

of realities building on realities:

purposelessness to purpose

object to subject

action with intent.
