The universe of time and space
is leading us on merry chase
as schemes are parleyed to and fro
in astro-physic quid pro quo
of scientific relay race.
We dwell in lilliputian place
within the heavens’ vast embrace
unfathomable be it so
While here we spin in cosmic grace
with sight that cannot see our face
beneath a vault of indigo
in multiverse? ‘big bounce’ yo-yo?
from ‘Plato’s Cave’ we seek to trace

Some sources of inspiration were the following…
Multiverse: ~ (in physics and cosmology) a hypothetical reality that includes a possibly infinite number of parallel, identical, or diverse universes, including our own.
Big Bounce ~ theorizes that perhaps the Big Bang was more of a “Big Bounce”, a turning point in an ongoing cycle of contraction and expansion.
Plato’s Cave ~ An allegorical cave, described by Plato, whose inhabitants see reality only in the form of shadows projected onto a wall by a fire behind them.
