Science, 265 B.C.
Archimedes (see 265 B.C.)
has discovered ("Eureka!") the law of specific gravity while sitting in
his bathtub: a body dropped into a liquid will displace an amount of
equal to its own weight. He considers his ingenious mechanical
beneath the dignity of pure science.
gravitational wave noun
A hypothetical wave that is held to propagate the
force of gravity and to travel at the speed of light. Also called gravity wave.
It seems more likely to
me that all this complexity is better directed toward the end of the
cycle when, after billions of years of evolution,
everything finally comes together. Alfred North Whitehead proposed
this same idea. He said that history grows toward what he called a
"nexus of completion." And these nexuses of completion themselves grow
together into what he called the "concrescence."
A concrescence exerts a kind of attraction, which can be thought of as
the temporal equivalent of gravity, except all objects in the universe
are drawn toward it through time, not space.

waves caress the foamed shore below. resonating ultrasonic through the cliffs of
their sound. the sun's shine is poured all around, drying the
leaves and such. there is something about here, and it does me
good. where we have color, eyes and movement, where sound is
understood. we have living respiration, a breath echo
vibration. solid sun inspiration and
ground where forebears stood. here I am going, and here I will
stay. I have a body to do my moving, to find my home wood.
I am here to see tomorrow. I am here to breathe today.

Words eye. Singularity. you did not sing and I
would not dream.
you are the shade
breeze. you are the shade. you are the shade breeze
blowing. the movers of the stream. Words eye. stops
breath withholding the heart within its rib cage and it stops for
a moment. Waves caress
the foamed shore below, resonating ultrasonic through the cliffs of
their sound. I was hoping that you would make it, and I'm happy
that you could. I was hoping that you would make it. I am
happy that you could. And I will see you again.
