When we are confronted by the possibility that everything we've learned in life could be a lie, how do we "know" what we think we know?
FLOATING ON AN ENDLESS SEA
OF QUESTIONS AND UNCERTAINTY.
DRIFTING ON AND IN A FATHOMLESS ABYSS:
A TINY PLANET FLOATING IN THE SKY.
OUR NAKED FLESH CANNOT SURVIVE
THE AIRLESS COLD ON EITHER SIDE.
DRIVEN BY WINDS OF CHAOS AND REALITY
WE STEER OUR TINY BOAT OF LIES
TO SUSTAIN OUR FRAGILE LIVES
FOR AN INSTANT IN ETERNITY.
WHO NAVIGATES THE BRUTAL TIDES?
ARE WE OUR ONLY FRIEND AND GUIDE
WHILE SAILING THROUGH INFINITY?
Lawrence R. Spencer. 2013
"When we're young we run and play "let's pretend" to be anything and everything - just for fun. Our imagination is the key. As we grow up we are told by others who are very serious That reality is time and space and gold; that games and visions are delirious. Life goes on and we agree what other people think is best: to play our part in reality just like them and all the rest. Every game has a start, a middle and conclusion. When the time comes to depart just make a new illusion! You are Spirit ! Life Eternal ! You'll make a future and new friends ! Through your dreams you are immortal; like children playing "let's pretend"."
