for Duane Elgin

        What science is beginning to explore,
        A universe that’s vital to the core,
        Revokes the mechanistic model taught
        By Newton, finding it less thing than thought,
        With every part tuned in to every other,
        As much akin as sister to a brother,
        For when we reckon rightly, what we find
        Is that the whole shebang is made of mind.

        Then those of us more mystically attuned
        May heal from our old mechanistic wound
        Opening more to cosmic consciousness
        Such as primordial magi might possess.
        What Huxley found behind perception’s door
        Is what noetic scientists explore.
