THE KNOWN UNIVERSE
That we are here is miracle enough
To prove the universe is more than stuff,
More than just matter, mass and energy,
But some informing consciousness that’s free
From physicality, the ghost behind
Appearances, the soul of matter: Mind.
That metaphysics should return today,
Though long repressed by Mechanism’s sway,
Owes to the power of Einstein’s quantum views
Which put uncertainty back in the news
And hinted that intention underlies
The evolutionary enterprise.
The Cosmos has a purpose of its own.
And we’re the knower by whom that is known.
