EDGAR MITCHELL, R.I.P.
Now Edgar Mitchell knows the truth at last,
Or not, revealed in his epiphany
While standing on the Moon, with all the vast-
Ness of the circled cosmos clear to see.
It might as well have been the mind of God
Made manifest and wheeling in his view
And he no more a merely mortal clod
Now capable of knowing what is True.
Then with this visionary insight he
Proceeded as a scientist would go
Investigating wide and carefully
The gnosis that had overwhelmed him so,
And out of this, Noetic Science came
To verify what mystics all proclaim.
