Symphony of Science: Ode to the Brain

[Vilayanur Ramachandran]
Here is this mass of jelly
You can hold in the palm of your hands
And it can contemplate the vastness of interstellar space

[Jill Bolte Taylor]
Information in the form of energy
...

And then it explodes into this enormous collage
And in this moment we are perfect
We are whole and we are beautiful

Ars Poetica 2.0

The second day of freedom is a fitful
dream, an unmoored kite, uncertain
of the missing.  The wind

is sharper without a grounding
force, the light harsher like the flicker
the moment the hanging

lamp has its cord cut.

Have a little faith.
Set fire to the orange grove.
