What If



What if

the humans faded away

into nightmare-


all flora, fauna

and knowledge vanished

into nothingness-


E would

still be equal to



grand math

would still glitter

in the night sky

  1. Awesome thought! If they are true, scientific discoveries will be discovered again, and math will parse and express them. If anyone cares. If on a planet somewhere, something wants to know more, to go more places. May they be less blind than we.

  2. I love this line of thought, though some dispute it. There is something comforting about the fact that we are just a part of the whole, not necessarily the focus.

  3. Ah, yes. Nature and its fundamentals would be the same even if the society and culture fade away. It can be found again, discovered and embraced.
    We already know so little, that too only of the surface of it. Well-penned.

  4. matter existed before “our intelligence” …. so whose to say it will not continue to ignore our follies and go about its business?

    this is a pith philosophical poem – and rather refreshing for the reminder, that we are not the “be all end all” of this world, or any other, for that matter.

  5. Humanity is so vain that we believe the world revolves around us at our bidding but in fact we really are just only another carnivorous and destructive animal on the planet.

  6. Yes grand math will glitter in the night sky. I just heard today that there are more stars in the cosmos than grains of sand upon the earth. It has been proven. Wondrous.

Thank You :)
