the last scientific discovery...
let me footnote that by saying
i am by no means proclaiming an end to discovery
quite the opposite if you will...
rather... a transformation in what we know as science
an evolution of a scale...
no... even the word ‘scale’
with its implied references to weight and measurement
is entirely inappropriate...
an evolution so vast that the very connotations of the word ‘science’
the study of matter... of atoms...
the use of telescopes and microscopes...
in their essence are inherently misleading
a discovery is not a creation... but a change in perception
a new perspective on an amorphous situation
the changing circumstance of relative awareness
the contradiction of a still frame... a still life
with no account for rotation... or momentum
the lift of a veil to reveal... another dimension
only to witness things human beings might think about
but normally do not see
of which they are acutely aware... silently
things as infinite as the patterns of snowflakes
and as natural... familiar... like hot or cold
sensations that you feel... you remember
still they surprise you... as if unusual... but not unknown
complex... but understandable... intriguing... yet subtle
an interaction outside all notions of action and reaction
a communication... an exchange
like light replacing darkness
or darkness... light
