There’s more to this than we now comprehend
In our developing cosmology
About the origin and likely end
Of what, if anything, we’re meant to be.
Is ours the only mind that has emerged
Within the vastness of the universe?
Are we on track, or has our race diverged
Since long ago incurring God’s stern curse?
Or are those ancient stories primitive
Attempts at making sense of what we now
Seek answers that our scientists can give,
Who may not answer why, but when and how?
The theory toward which I feel most inclined
Is that all things that matter come from mind.
