Pursuing The Big Picture 2013

            Pursuing The Big Picture: (A poem about chaos)

What defines the chaos order?

Unity within?

Ordered chaos?

Fractals; re- re- reproduction:

Repetition in the pattern;

Figures in unendingness without a pause,

Each cause effect, effect a cause;

An infinitely complex picture.

Breaking down into reactions,

Fractals: patterns never ending;

Simple rules for complex systems.

What a thought!  Repeats – but not exactly;

Exactititude yet paradox.

Unity/diversity. Transmognified simplicity.

Creation’s dust resulting in

A man.

The answers stand evolving, testing,

Keeping, building on each magic;

Organizing-self; the miracle –

AndiIf you will, the oracle.

Evolving, time scale cosmic.

All the time refining.

Interacting and surviving.

This creation does its thing.

Trial and error.

New, un-programmed,

Organizing self to Self

Spontaneously unintentioned;

A dynamic universe.

Always picking, choosing: new.

Nature’s mathematics.

One might say God’s thumbprint.

Mandelbrot.  Great.

Bending Over A Bathtub While Thinking 2012

Bending Over The Bathtub While Thinking


Brain I am in touch with you.

You are the You-niverse,

A You-knowverse which knows you back:

Back, front, and sideways.



Nothing going on ‘upstairs’.

As I become aware of staring

Where there’s nothing’s going on,

Transformation in a second.

Change within, inside the mind.

I bind myself to it: it’s beckoned.

It: the flashing nano-minute.


Standing up and going out,

Picking up a tome I’m

Reading, I resume

The all-plebeian ordinary daytime.
