Mind by Kenny Goh


It knew it was special.
Eternity was set in it, yet it was mortal.

Mind civilised and tamed the land.
Mind lorded over the earth. Mind dominated the earth.
Yet the earth was but a mote in a seemingly endless universe.
And on this mote resided the only known awareness in the universe.

So Mind looked to the stars.
Without physical conquest, Mind engulfed the universe.
Mind understood the universe.

But there were the unseen things.
These too, Mind brought to light.
Energies were harnessed to its liking.
The mysteries of Time Space opened up.

One by one, the universe gave up its secrets to Mind.
The mental conquest came as a torrent.

It knew it was special, yet the reason was incomprehensible.
Despite intimate understanding of the universe,
Despite a future dictated by Mind,
This last hurdle proved one too high.

The question of Existence remained closed,
And as the stars burn out shall Mind pass without meaning.

Ecc 1:18:

For with much wisdom comes much sorrow;
the more knowledge, the more grief.
