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.

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?
