The Long Walk of The Alchemical Gambler.

The path I am on
passes through every point in the universe.
In my dreams
Einstein mocks me
"That could take a long time"
His knowledge of the universe seems bigger than the universe.

In my dreams
The particulate energies of my existence
scatter randomly
then suddenly freeze
at the moment of maximum randomness
exactly equidistant.

In my dreams
I see how little I can say about nothing
I can't stop thinking about nothing
The less I think , the more I am.
Descartes interrupts -" I should think not !"
then promptly vanishes into nowhere.

In my dreams
I float above
my supercool, superconductive
Biefield -Brown hv thruster
My mass changed, velocity static
I travel through time.

In my dreams
The boundary of the universe
is a fractal
expanding to accomodate knowledge of energy
The infinite enclosed in finite space.

In my dreams
There are no waves, light is not of two minds
energy flows through funnels
and like a giant pachinko game
finds its ethereal path blocked, forced to coagulate as matter
or bifurcate - casting interference patterns;
blocked by eleven D superstrung walls
enclosing an alternative dark mattered universe.

In my dreams
The probability something happens is one
the number of alternatives is infinite
heads, not heads, crashing, not crashing
the tips of my fingers inseperable from everything
the total matter of the Earth held in my hand.

In my dream
The alchemist walks up to the door
bottle of wine in hand
and sits at the table.
"I'll see your articles of faith
and raise you one grand unification theory."
God rolls the dice.

Now this is something you can read over and over and it just gets better. There is so much to like that I won't comment on any one part except to say at the end I applied it to my life and one word came to mind - crap(s)! Good thing I'm in the habit of watching the science channel when I do watch TV.

Hi, Thanks Bob. The awful truth about the science channel and others of its ilk is that they seem to be dunbed down to about an 8year olds level :-( My gambling extends to occasional lotto tickets and a once in a blue moon trip to the casino - though I find the people's faces in there to be just a little desperate and depressing.

Hi Glenn,
This is what I would call a wonderful mixture or rather compound of the modern science and poetry...a very innovative and original work...
I am very happy to read your poems...

"The Baroque Cycle"by Neil Stephenson ("Quicksilver" is the first book) comes to mind if you what to explore The Age of Enlightenment through an Issac Newton story of universal porportions - your writing allows so many facets to sparkle together, through gem after well-placed gem..

Thanks Bradford, from your photo you look like someone who might know! Will check your recommendation out one day.

This took my breath away. How wonderful that you managed to bring together science and spirituality together. How very fitting for me now as I am finishing Book of Secrets by Deepak Chopra (in which he touches on the same aspects of life).

Dreams are probably our gateways to understanding the universe and what it really is. In reality, it's here, there and everywhere, leaking into all corners of ourselves, homes, lives, masquerading cunningly as unremarkable objects that it truly doesn't need masters of the world to work it out.

It starts from us, within ourselves.

Neat. Our particles collide when we dream.

Cecilia, if only science and spirituality were mmore closely linked. It took me 18 years to finish my science degree - the more you learn the less you know! I started it with hopes of learning about 'the world and how it works' and was completely dissatisfied with the results. Science seems to be at best descriptive, somewhat predictive and fairly useful. It doesnt answer to the big questions.
As far as dreams go, I would love to reach a synthesis between my'waking' world and my dream world, where I could move between the two at will (well it wouldn't be two then would it). I guess that would make me a wizard or some such thing!
Stonepoem- quite possibly, I am always meeting people in my dreams who I don't know!

Nope, it doesn't. The more you seek, the more you get frustrated as more questions arise. And maybe that's the beauty of it, after all.

At which point it all becomes a matter of faith. I did a paper on astrophysics once, the numbers they toss around! Ultimately it was like a grotesque comedy/parody of philosophy. I mean to say, they are dealing with things that we will never be able to prove by experience.. the big bang, things outside our solar system etc. They presume too much methinks.
