"Laws" can only refer to OBSERVED regularities within Spacetime. They do not exist in the sense that they dictate what is to come. What is REALLY to come has come to pass already...Anthropomorphic languaging uses concepts within our limited domain of operation to make sense of our little corner of Reality with wording like "Laws" ...

@Albuquerque,
that went over my head, please spare me the need to find an encyclopedia.

WHO is that guy? It looks like John Sloan or even Ben Austrian.

It would be appropriate for you to explain who this guy is so I can appropriate it for later use.

@farmerman,
One of the top 1o writers of the first half of XX century how can you not know or wiki it? From Japan and China up to Germany or even on your country go figure America, everyone who is barely connected to literature knows, people make PHD thesis on his work from almost a century now!

@Albuquerque,
Well, Ill just plead ignorance since there are a few authors I avoid by ignorance or by choice.

@farmerman,
The poem, the source of the sentence I quoted Farma:
(The translation is highly insufficient, the reading is atrociously dramatic...)


Much better in French as expected from a Latin language...

@farmerman,
Good to know Farma, did he wrote down the brilliant observation that we are all prey of Geology? If he did that I might entertain the idea...

This is my only attempt at writing poetry in English fifteen years or so ago right before I quit writing altogether.

SHATTERED WORDS

Lost and found, the timeless rainbow of my bubble soap knights...
randomly displaced between the hours of no thought !
Frail suspension, of shadows to forecast, once upon the time...
Shattered words, in the twilight of my Japanese gardens.
Vaguely vain, sleepy slow, as yesterdays from yesterday,
wondering, might as mist, in the dusty twist of memories...
Pilgrimage for noway, "La Mancha" to nowhere !
Smoking thoughts, as settlers of no thought,
under the vanishing light of my last true cigar...

Best Regards>FILIPE DE ALBUQUERQUE

@Jasper10,
Therefore the abstract possibility of thinking at all in this Universe landed me in the REAL illusion of existence through which "I become"!
Much better than Descartes ain't it?

@Albuquerque,
I think? what you are saying ties in with my views that the "I am" i.e. the presence which we all have (without thought) has the ability to become more and more aware. This includes becoming more aware of at least the 2 off different consciousness states of manual and autopilot (or in the moment /not in the moment). The presence ; awareness and consciousness state being 3 off separate things...…. which I accept goes against main stream thinking/views.
