                      How to explain this wondrous mystery
                      That we and all of life inhabit here,
                       A rock in space within a galaxy,
                       A rock that somehow grew an atmosphere
                       And, most miraculous, organic cells
                       That over eons have evolved to us
                       Amongst the panoply of life that dwells
                       Here now—a spectacle that’s marvelous.

                       Our most persuasive theory is that Mind
                       Pervades the cosmos and can generate
                       Materiality in ways designed
                       To bring forth beings who themselves create
                       Still more complexity and grow aware
                       Of the amazing Mind that brought them here.
