MIND OVER MATTER or is it -

Which is it, Mind over Matter, or Matter of Mind? You've heard it said, "The weight of the matter ..." But there is virtually no weight in matter out there The Universe is "information" say experts who are smart They really mean: "CONSCIOUSNESS," like living art Where background and foreground are alive, organic (Imagine a SUBJECT for the painter, becoming ART "Talking with each other." Quarks "see" a scientist Watching them, change from wave to particle, or WAVEICLE! No, Siblings, IF we watch our mind, even MIND our minds Our THINGing will not pull earthlings oft with whimsical winds We will become ONE BODY with Creation: "No minds, no matter!" Try, just try, to stand near Redwoods, Old Oak: say "Hi Brother." NOTE: It can be risky to write some of science we know about Quarks and light particles, and use RHYME. I may use words for their syllable count or rhythm, and mis-communicate. So, the last word, "Brother" ought to be "SIBLING" of any gender. That said, thanks for reading -- and LOVING the Universe (& trees). Shalom, shalOM.

I read once that they tried to determine if the human soul had weight, so they weighed the people’s bodies while they transitioned from life to death. They found no difference. So it seems our souls are immeasurable.
