Lost worlds

Here we are and here we stay.

But what is this vision of the here?

Our comings and goings are mere episodes in a life we feign to understand.

Our explanations are theories built on a foundation built for us.

We are ever other than everything we identify as the cause of our being.

We cannot look upon ourselves without creating a separation between seer and the seen.

We are ghosts amidst a world that knows nothing of our existence.

And we have lost the feel for that difference

– of the knowledge that remains more than any fact we can make of it

– of a place in being beyond any idea we can lend to ourselves.
