I wonder if the cosmos would exist if the mind was not here to think it into being? Science and physiology really are two of the most poetic things mankind has ever mused over. The Greek translation for the word cosmos means both beauty and order, meaning that both are thought to exist within our universe. The lightning streaks that fan out from the pupils look like a miniature diagram of the big bang, perhaps the universe exploded into existence inside of the mind and left colorful scars in our eyes.
“Every once in a while, but not often, you can sit down and write a thing that you know is going to stand people’s hair on end for the rest of their lives- a perfect memory of some kind, like a vision, and you can see the words rolling out of your fingers and bouncing around for a while like wild little jewels before they finally roll into place & line up just exactly like you wanted them to…” - Hunter.S.Thompson
