I was wondering whether anyone had any links to japanese poetry on existence. I would like to find a haiku that described the sort of things we talk about on here: mainly non-dualism, the ego, how we all connect to one another.
Without researching I cannot say much other than I believe that the haiku was largely influenced by Zen. I therefore suspect that the contents may be less important than the mode/event of production in some cases....I'm thinking in terms of 'energy flow' in either the writing or the speaking.
Hope this helps.
Not the dinosaurs
A much earlier fossil
from which man evolved
The extinction of the reptilian dinosaurs some 66 million years ago, was a blessing to mankind, as they would have been the greatest threat to the continued evolution of mankind from our ancestors ‘The Mammals,’ of which our oldest known primate-like mammal ancestors, were the Plesiadapis, which came from North America; or the Archicebus, which came from China, or any of the other similar basal primates, which were widespread in Eurasia and Africa during the tropical conditions of the Paleocene and Eocene geological Epochs. And the evolutionary history of those primates can be traced back 65 million years, shortly after the time when the dinosaurs became extinct.
