Myths and Hypothesis
Myths and hypothesis evolve through time.
From the Garden of Eden and before …
Until the undetermined end, men indulge themselves.
Speculation upon speculation, ideas arise and fall.
Hoarding the past *like shards on a battlefield.
**Dreaming, deliberating, debating ideas…seeking truths.
Reckoning the present in terms of antiquity.
Archaeological finds ***dance upon the past.
Today languishes into a myriad of tomorrows.
Wisdom flickers like a firefly sparkling the dark.
Illumination hides amid darkness of yesterday.
And wisdom is veiled like the sun during a solar eclipse.
Age upon Age; culture upon culture; faith upon faith,
Man has sought to explain his existence.
Thought upon thought, experiment upon experiment
Man’s mind methodically meanders amid collected facts.
Between the Creations, the Big Bang, and the appearance of life…
Beyond the imagination until the apocalypse
Men dissect creatures, theories, and facts…interpreting.
Weaving a web of logic to bind the beginning to the soul.
Hoping, discovering, discerning, deciding, debating…forever.
And thus, continues, the myths and hypothesis of man.
