What New Realms Await?

We live

in a universe

of subatomic particles,

the building blocks

of everything else.

All we can see

and touch

is made up of the stuff.

Even in the seemingly

empty void

of space

science tells us

virtual particles

pop in and out

of existence.
Reductionists

will tell us

all we need do

is understand

these subatomic particles

and we’ll

understand everything.
But I wonder

if there’s more

out there than

meets the eye.
Mathematics

for example,

the language of the universe.

Was mathematics

invented or discovered?

Was it always

out there

just waiting

for a brain of sufficient size

and complexity

to tap into its realm?

This seems to be the case.

Would E=MC2

be true here

and one billion

light years from here.

The question is then,

what other realms

might there be awaiting

discovery

when a brain

of sufficient size

and complexity

comes to be?

We’ll need to grow one

or make one

to find out.

What interesting times

await.
