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

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

mingled

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] ;)

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
universe.

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
forever.

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