Ah, make the most of what we yet may spend, Before we too into the Dust descend; Dust into Dust, and under Dust to lie Sans Wine, sans Song, sans Singer, and — sans End!
- Omar Khayyam (1048-1131)
Thinking Outside the Anecdote of the Jar
Inspired by Omar Khayyam's (1048-1131) quote, "Ah, make the most of what we yet may spend, Before we too into the Dust descend; Dust into Dust, and under Dust to lie Sans Wine, sans Song, sans Singer, and — sans End!". The titled responsion is an ode to consciousness...
Being remembered for eternity is an interesting proposition; an ideal of god-like proportions. The outcomes for many fade to black, that is a countless march in mediocracy to the fate of forgetful dust to which we descend.
Your Consciousness is a Jar
Inspired by Jonathan Swift's (1667-1745) quote, "Satire is a sort of glass, wherein beholders do generally discover everybody's face but their own". The titled responsion is open for discussion. Literally!
Standing on the four-legged language animals that we came from, the biodiversity of our phylogenetic chain extends throughout the biodiversity that supports life on earth. What is it like to be a bat? A cat, or a rat?
We Are But a Glimpse
Inspired by Samuel Beckett's (1906-1989) quote, "They give birth astride of a grave, the light gleams an instant, then it's night once more.". The titled responsion is but a glimpse at our own reflection, the words are echos of futurity mixed with history.
The potential is axiomatic to the function and thresholds within our brains. Action potentials and tipping points are what I am referring to. That's life!
