The Quantum Blizzard

This is a queer existential dimension:
Who were mere boys a second past,
have transformed into men,
and who were but little girls,
into grown women.

Time, eternal and everlasting,
stays static, stuck on the same,
yet moving, always moving on.
‘What is’ becomes ‘what was’
quicker than you can say ‘It is.’

Infancy blossoms into youth,
and youth wilts into wisdom.
But wisdom is outdated,
so it is shunned for what
shall be ‘what is’ for a millisecond.

Life falls into death,
and death into nonexistence.
But one wonders, sometimes,
if anything ever really existed at all?

As dawn turns to dusk,
and young men to dust,
who knew, if ever, anything
really was, ‘what is’.

Perhaps, we are all shadows
of a fickle, intangible present.
Perhaps, nothing exists,
perhaps, everything just existed.

    There is an interesting theory that we are all living in some kind of computer generated simulation. What we perceive to be real is merely a manifestation of computer programming. Indeed we may all only be mere bits of data thinking that we exist independently while, in reality we are mere pawns of the programmer. Alternatively the programmer sets the program in motion and leaves humanity free to act while observing with interest. There is an interesting link here, I am sceptical of this view but it is, none the less fascinating. Incidentally I love old fashioned pendulum clocks, The steady tick tock and the movement of the pendulum gives a real sense of time moving/progressing which I, for one do not get from the soulless modern electric clocks.

      I read about that as well… The interesting thing is that considering we have made such simulations too, that programmer may be a part of a bigger simulation and so on… We might not be a simulation, we may be a simulation within a simulation… LoL

    The imagination travels and gets lost. Its location is uncertain and it doesn’t know either despite all the signs on and off the road. Doubtful that the quantum snow knows either, even when it melts on the tongue. Tasty poem.

    True. Nothing ever existed. This world could be all illusion…

      LoL… Many people believe that it is… πŸ˜‰
