Miracle enough is that we’re here,
That out of star dust humans could appear
With consciousness adept to comprehend
Where we began and on what course we’ll wend.
The Cosmos is self-conscious at long last,
Although we must suppose within its vast
Expanses mind has otherwhere emerged
And taken other paths that have diverged
From how we’ve grown and may be more advanced
In knowledge, and in wisdom much enhanced.
Let’s hope that’s so and that in time we’ll find
Good ways to emulate exalted mind,
And our adventure in humanity
Will prove at last we’ve mastered sanity.
