We are as gods already,
with exponential technologies,
indistinguishable from magic,
that transcend time and distance,
sending thought at lightspeed,
so that those we love remain
readily reachable in a world wide web
which extends our minds to the
now-unbounded truths of our time.
It’s more than technology though,
for we’ve derived the make-up of the
stars soaring through our nights.
We know the gods of old myth
and the forces that govern them.
So it is, as it has always been,
that we turn inward and find
empty space and points of light,
mimicking exactly the spacetime
we now manipulate with mind.
For what does science, only a term
for progressive collection of knowledge,
prove if not that man is nothing
other than the universe
becoming conscious of itself?
That we are made of stars,
as our gods of old were,
therefore are ourselves gods?
We are one within the universe,
the universe one within us.
This is the psychology of starlight,
the mythology of atoms and galaxies.
*Think about what the men who wrote any of the holy texts many still follow literally today, would have thought of something like this!
