Proof

Michael Matalon 1973 (New York)



What intelligence
exists in our genes
that give them orders
to build these machines?

Just think about thinking
and imagine your mind.
Be honest with your thoughts,
there's a proof you will find.

There is a wisdom
we all share,
a single consciousness
in the air,
that tells us the answer of
why we are here

About this poem

What’s the wisdom built into the physical world? Why do atoms assemble, why do they form complex structures, why do they produce sentience?
