“Mr Argus! Sir~!”
Oops. Not good.
For little Virginia to be so definite I must’ve stepped on her toes. Cute little toes, but toes nonetheless. Ouch.
“Yes, Little Virg—”
“Sir! I know what you’re thinking! No good will come of it—”
“Little Cutie—so few read me I can say anything I like with no qualms—”
“On your own head, Sir!”
Ages ago I perused a purported ancient screed of wisdom. Tonight I was tossed headfirst back into it.
TRY THIS THOUGHT
for sense. Run your own analysis, then join me in having pity for a sage who knows his onions:
Then to me spoke HE, the Master:
Know ye, O Thoth, in the beginning
there was VOID and nothingness,
a timeless, spaceless, nothingness.
And into the nothingness came a thought,
and It filled the VOID.
There existed no matter, only force,
a movement, a vortex, or vibration
of the purposeful thought
that filled the VOID …
Now how about—
NOTHING CAN COME FROM NOTHING
—no? (If Jefferson can get away with holding some truths to be self-evident so can I.)
BUT I DO LIKE
Mr Thoth’s optimism. And bits of it ring true. Time is indeed The Essence.
How often do I bleat that “If it happens at all, it happens in Time?” which is as self obvious. We shan’t go into the paradoxes …
No thinking, no reflecting,
Yet therein something moves,
Following its own course …
Time now (ouch) to reduce to unarguable simple mathematics:
no time = no nothing
—QED. Oh …
Time changes not,
but all things change in time.
For time is the force
that holds events separate,
each in its own proper place.
Time is not in motion,
but ye move through time
as your consciousness
moves from one event to another.
—and this guy scored a Godhood for that? There’s hope for me yet … I also often state that—
No two physical objects
Can occupy the same space
At the same time
… with the corollary—
Any determined attempt
to make them do so
will lead to disruption
—and in these few brief lines I’ve explained how atomic bombs work. Ye gods, I’m a genius! (Thoth—eat your heart out.)
