      In us the universe may realize
      Self-consciousness and come to understand
      The vast intelligence that underlies
      A mystery so awesome and so grand.

      When Homo sapiens grows sapient
      Beyond the follies that have long prevailed, 
      We’ll come to recognize our true intent
      And what in our potential is entailed.

      The harbingers of wisdom long have taught
      The way of kindness and solicitude,
      The virtues and the graces that we ought
      To realize, that need to be pursued.

           On Earth we humans play the leading role,
           And knowing who we are is our clear goal.
