Prescience of mind

Some things we can touch are truly set in stone, From creatures living in sand, to ones choking on fish bones They get stuck in mud, and dry out under the sun, til after a hundred million years, fossil’s are well and truly done You see many died at sea level, in any shape or measure, some resurface atop mountains, forced up by tectonic pressure Now we chip away slowly, using a chisel and hammer, breaking open their mould, without making too much clamour Information cannot be destroyed, it lives on forever and human consciousness too, is simply far more than clever We give the universe meaning by making observations without us to see it, there would be no quantifications Death is not the end, merely a quantum vibration from mass to energy and back again, without any violations So go ahead live your life, then come full circle, time and space can’t endure oblivion, consciousness being eternal Originally written 12/07/22 2022 Poetry Marathon Mile 23 Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Mark Toney 12/19/22

'Death is not the end, merely a quantum vibration from mass to energy and back again, without any violations"...... Do agree with half of your statement ! Death is never the end, but only a beginning to the eternal- from mass to energy. But then no more reversion from energy to mass. That is what I believe. There are intangible mysteries in the universe that human mind cannot fathom. Profound thoughts, dear David. A great entry for the contest. All the Best....

Thank you Valsa I agree so many mysteries beyond our comprehension at the moment, I was perhaps using the scientifically proven route of mass to energy and back again, and applying human consciousness into the mix, with information being indestructible, all theoretical of course, but my imagination likes to push the boundaries, and provide food for thought, even though this one is a world away from the sponsors beliefs, I enjoyed your comment, cheers David

There is a lot more to this world and our existence than meets the eye, I don't think man in all his wisdom will ever fully understand it. Interesting verse David. Tom

Heya Tom, Man alone probably won’t figure it all out, but we can now program computers to run mind boggling simulations, if we can someday decipher quantum reality, who knows, cheers David

Thank you Jenna, my thoughts are never too far away from writing, or trying to figure out the universe, 100 million years in the wink of an eye, cheers David

Thanks Christopher, all theoretically possible of course, with some big name scientists now bringing human consciousness into their quantum calculations, cheers David
