Poem - Beyond Our Sight
This poem is an extension of Beyond and Dark Forces, to consider consciousness and reality out with our own three-dimensional existence. Whatever you believe, I think that science, religion and spiritualism may come together to try and explain this profound question but we will probably never know!
BANG, subatomic particles and electromagnetism ignite
Generating the first building blocks of life bound by pure light
Creating our observable universe, what a wonderful sight
But question, how the cosmos can be so huge and so vast
In the infinite expanse of space, are we not a quantum reality?
To experience our dualistic journey through life and mortality.
Genesis 1: In the beginning, God created the heaven and earth
Dividing light from dark, day from night, and water from land
The sun, moon, stars, seasons, days and years, life, all planned
Regardless of theological variations across a different cultural divide
The world’s main religions rely on trust, faith and self-control
With common themes such as one God and existence of the soul.
See, towards the spirit world where entities continue to thrive
Is this the key to our ‘soul’ to experience love, loss and plight?
To pursue our journey to evolve in what is known as the afterlife.
Some say this passage is a natural progression of life after death
But dead or alive, we can learn and endure these new spheres of reality
Through mind over matter, meditation, near-death or final mortality.
Note, to the conscious observer, our natural world is truly mesmerising
Nature by numbers, it is a logical maze, embracing the Fibonacci sequence
0, 1 + 1, 2 + 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610... genius
Arcs, spirals, petals, flowers, shells, ocean waves, and the universe itself
Believe it or not, follow the flow of nature’s code, a mathematical equation
‘God’ or ‘Creator’ or ‘Higher Order’ or ‘Force’ or some mysterious emanation.
Socially Constructed Reality
Look, to understand our perception of reality, we must venture inside
Not out there at the physical or natural world, but here, in the mind
That sits in total darkness until photons of pure light intertwine.
Generating electromagnetic signals through billions of neurons
To create the images we see to provide clarity not confusion
It is a multi-sensory, technicolour show, what a fantastic illusion.
Observe, the physical world is full of unimaginable beauty
But restricted and trapped in our three-dimensional reality
With the fourth dimension of space-time, that is our actuality.
Look further, beyond, away from our conscious state of mind
It is hard to comprehend what we are not able to actually see
Dare to leave this physical reality behind and set yourself free.
Stare in wonder, towards an existence beyond this materialistic realm
Outside the human body, weightless, where space and time no longer assist
Like a seductive kiss, return to the light, how wonderful again, to co-exist.
The soul is free, without physical limitations, to develop, learn and grow
Reconnect to your original form; no past, no present no future behold
Our experience of life and death, both here and there, is a story to be told.
