possibility narrows with time
but
influence of past action grows

aging is a not a necessary evil, but a wise bargain


**edit** it came to my attention that the meaning of 'telomere' might not be common knowledge and that could make the meaning seem obscure. basically, a telomere is the segments of dna on both ends of a chromosome. as we age they grow shorter. it is now commonly believed by some longevity researchers that the shortening of the telomere is directly related to the causes of aging and even death, and that it may even be possible to slow or stop these processes if some way could be found to halt or reverse the telomere's consumption. **/end edit**

Frail led me here thru his remarks on Joys page. I am better for the trip. the variety of your style has yet to stifle my amazement. the matrix you've chosen to format this is so double helixy spifftastic! I am in Worship ment. have you ever sampled justb's stuff? I think you might find some enjoyment in his work. I will comment more, once I have calmed down.

Very intresting way of writting, never seen that before. Well I have to say that my absouloute fav. part is the ending
"an ending:
I"
I really do love that part. I mean I like the whole thing but that one part shines. Love it, great work.

i love the way you see things.

i actually have a tattoo of an ouroboros snake (just to add another spelling to the mix) on my right arm, a native american version ... i think it's so cool that the symbol is repeated in cultures all over the globe ...

I divide my time as follows: half the time I sleep, the other half I dream. I never dream when I sleep, for that would be a pity, for sleeping is the highest accomplishment of genius.

Wow, tripped out format....

Hmmm, I always thought it was spelled "oroborus"...

But anyway, nifty, I've always liked the concept of them regardless of how they're spelled.

I like this style, even if it doesn't make a whole lotta sense to me... I might haveta check out some of your other work...
