There’s just so much to do about this nothing that seems to be The quantum void that is; the source of all that is, and all that is not Perchance the emptiness between our ears, that speaks yet does not hear How will we know what’s real and unreal in this world of delusion? When will we learn, there’s nothing to learn that Being knows not? But surely this nothing is something to be known Since science is real (as we know from yard signs) It surely must know the truth about nothing Minding the Gates, those who check the facts Will sort the truth from the stories, we’re told Through science we know Our bodies of virus and bugs are made Yet scientist politicians would have us fear Of what we are made But fear not! Big Pharma has the weapon To destroy the virus of origins in question Our beliefs do confine the world we see Germ theory will collapse when the terrain is known But speak not such views; As Giordano Bruno dared show Those who reveal shall burn at the stake Well, it’s not so bad. You’ll only be banned Not burned at the stake But where, or who, will we be Transcending the beliefs we hold so dear? There’s just so much to learn About this nothing that seems to be So with answers to seek; deeply we dive Into the abyss of “ness” where monsters do thrive But cannot be proven So elusive they are And here we see through vision within When “ness” joins nothing "Nothingness” gives birth to all that we are, and all that is And the will to create in a world of illusion — Chris Allen, March 15, 2021
The story behind the poem
Inspired by my reading of “Emptiness Dreaming: The Story of Creation as Seen Through the Eyes of the Quantum Void” by Bill Bauman, Ph.D.; I was inspired to write about our collective challenge of understanding and adapting to the massive changes in every aspect of our lives that is taking place across the planet. The poem’s style is inspired by the writings of Dr. Seus, William Shakespeare & Lewis Carroll. Content additionally inspired by the research of Doctors Thomas Cowan & Andrew Kaufman.
