Fractal

 

Fractal

 

 

 

Our rate of knowing

 

Is out of control,

 

Escalating speed

 

Pushing exponentially,

 

Deeper,

 

Wider,

 

Denser,

 

Pursuing connections

 

And finding them,

 

Forging fresh developments

 

To old ideas

 

Leading to

 

New uses,

 

New understandings,

 

New possibilities,

 

New complexities,

 

New mysteries,

 

New challenges,

 

That soon turn old,

 

All the while

 

Dissipating our humanity

 

In our excitement

 

Like the expanding universe

 

Casting its particles

 

Outward

 

Into dark space.
