Kay,According to Brian, we're embedded in primal atoms. LOL!This poem subtly alludes to The Genesis Account. A good use of inversion! Chen-ou
One more thing:The title is thought-provoking.Chen-ou
Thank you, friend. It's fun to feed off of you guys!~Kay
No, Chen-ou! Yes, Kay! LOL! "Feeding off of" is the perfect understanding of Atomist philosophy. According to Democritus, Epicurus, and othe Atomists, (including modern science -- and don't get me started on the nonsensical conclusions drawn by the so-called "new physics", the conclusions of which no genuine physicist buys into), we are not "embedded" in atoms, we ARE the primal atoms themselves come together in a specific, ephemeral combination giving rise to life and consciousness. At death we remain those same atoms in a different state, losing the integrity of the combination that permitted emergence of life & consciousness. We then become food, plants, cattle, etc -- Food! Atomic building blocks. That is the only immortality I accept -- not meeting up with Grandma again in some place suspiciously resembling this one but "perfect" (whatever that means). After Darwin the idea of an afterlife has become a fanciful myth and wishful thinking. (End of Epicurean Sermon.)BTW: I love this one, Kay! LOL! The Bard would have enjoyed you immensely.
Brian, I've learned something new. Thanks!Kay,"Feeding off of..." Smiles! Chen-ou
Kind of you to say so, Chen-ou. The reality is I'm just a ranter as the first drops of morning espresso start wending their way through my bloodstream! You and Kay are often the beneficiaries of that first rush of caffeine-driven madness.
Keep drinking, Brian. LOL. I almost missed this exchange. What a wealth of information. I'm glad you caught the reference to Mr. Shakespeare, Brian. :o)Now that I've had breakfast, I have to go learn to make pickles with my neighbor. LOL. Love always, Kay
Poetry & pickles. Doesn't get much better than that! Yum.
