no longer
in 'this' cosmos
can our consciousness continue
after death

that our libretto was atomic
and all atoms are entangled
commands our entity


harmonized forever
with our universe

we beings being quantum
means we linger
in the darkness

lento - losing light
like a solo afterglow

although I'm pretty sure

...we'll never know

llp - apr2012 - dA
libretto = words sung in an opera.
lento = a musical term meaning 'slowly'.

[space opera] ;)

Well considering energy can't be destroyed or created,
what we are must have always existed and will forever!

Will we remember being who we are, NOW? I dunno
but for some reason I think we will. It's a beautiful
mystery just begging to be unraveled. I do like the 
way your minds work, those wheels are always

Ah, but the thing is, Sher, I don't interpret
any of it to my benefit. I toss out thoughts
and theories and read the theories of other
folks, but I don't assume any are true. Yes, 
I concoct what may or may not be logical
scenarios [depending on future proof] but
unless eventually proven, are just scenarios.

By the way, Sher, I just did a search and
found no indication that energy can carry
information. Right now, I'm thinking that
information only travels via the waves of
magnetic fields [sound, radio, light], as
per Maxwell and Faraday. I'm reading an
amazing book by Carlo Rovelli, "Reality Is
Not What It Seems", and just got to the
part about those two guys.

Then, there's IIT [Intergrated Information
Theory], so who knows. Merry Christmas.

Sounds like something I might want to read!

I've been reading  a lot about psychedelic medicine,
and how some groups are pushing to legalize it. Not
for recreational use, but medicinal---for PTSD, depression,
anxiety. And even for those dying, to provide an easier
way of transition reducing the anxiety and fear. 

And A Very Merry Christmas To You and Yours! :hug:

I'm not deep enough to fully understand this, but it does give me the feeling of being just another lonely particle, whirling through space, alone in the crowd... I'll have to read this several more times, but after only two, it's enough to know that I like the feeling presented so skillfully here.

while we're living and after we're
gone, theorizing from the fact of
quantum entanglement, it's probable
that the whole of our history is
reflected in the atoms, along with
the rest of all history, of the whole

how? all things, including thoughts,
occur through the processes of atomic
action. each moment, each thought, each
action is predicated on the position of
the atoms in the moment immediately
previous. if one had the ability to
measure the position of all of the
atoms at any one time, one could discern
the position immediately previous, then
previous, then previous - all the way
back to the big bang. the fact that we
of course cannot measure the position
of all those atoms. does not mean the
information is not there. it is.

and, we are there too. our history
remains, reflected in the atoms, past
the end of our lives, essentially

we Are timeless... unless i'm leaving
something out.

It's a good thought.
