THE COSMIC MYSTERY
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.
