A final analysis

At first there were the deities

who moved heaven and earth

and filled the firmament

with metaphysical meanings

as affirmed by ‘group think’.

Everything for a purpose

Nature anthropomorphised.

Then came the scientific method

with purpose translated into process

and meaning into verification

all within a material reality

as affirmed by ‘brain think’.

Humanity denuded

Nature atomised.
