We puzzle as to whether the universe is bounded or extends forever; whether, indeed, it may only be one universe among many. We speculate as to whether our universe began in a vast explosion, whether it pulsates between utter compression and wide diffusion, whether it is self-renewing and thus unchanged forever. And we are humble.
But science teaches more than this. It continually reminds us that we are still ignorant and there is much to learn. Time and space are interconnected in strange ways; there is no absolute simultaneity.
seeming's enough for slaves of space and time
— ours is the now and here of freedom.
a million thousand hundred nothings seem
— we are himself's own self;his very him
The whole truth…
sings only — and all lovers are the song
