For Our Creator, Evolution

Mammals we are,

Milk we need.

Or we won’t even be.

Thinkers we are,

Love we need.

Or we won’t even think.

Love tells us,

What to feel.

Love:

Milk for the soul.

We, bodies and souls

From a tangled web blossom.

Not just the quantum web,

Holding the universe together,

But even the web,

Of the highest values,

Holding minds together.

Values we learned to become

While other minds,

Gave us,

What we are.

No Love, No Chipmunks. No Heart. No Mind. And No Cuteness.

No Love, No Chipmunks. No Heart. No Mind. And No Cuteness.

    Wow! This is a side of you, Patrice, that I haven’t seen before. Thank you for sharing that.

    • Patrice Ayme Says:

      Dear Paul: All these ideas were expressed before on this site. Here and there. However, this time, it’s done in 90 words, something admittedly easier on the brain than a few million words… 😉
      Glad that you seem to appreciate said ideas. You should: after all, Learning from Dogs is full of them, and I learned there that it was important to foster them.

      Isaac Newton, of all people, partly inspired me… He went from arrogant to: “Only reason I saw so far is because I was standing on the shoulders of giants.” [Paraphrasing.]

      • Paul Handover Says:

        Patrice, thank you for your kind words, and that Newton quotation is one I have loved for many years.

      • Uncle Ira Says:

        Newton said that to mock Robert Hooke, and not in the nice way non.

        • Patrice Ayme Says:

          Welcome Uncle Ira! I was not there. However, Newton himself pointed out that a French scientist had suggested the inverse square law (before Newton’s birth).
          “I will explain,” says Hooke, in a communication to the Royal Society in 1666, “a system of the world very different from any yet received. It is founded on the following positions. 1. That all the heavenly bodies have not only a gravitation of their parts to their own proper centre, but that they also mutually attract each other within their spheres of action. 2. That all bodies having a simple motion, will continue to move in a straight line, unless continually deflected from it by some extraneous force, causing them to describe a circle, an ellipse, or some other curve. 3. That this attraction is so much the greater as the bodies are nearer. As to the proportion in which those forces diminish by an increase of distance, I own I have not discovered it….”

          Notice some of this was explicit in Buridan, 350 years earlier.

          Still, it’s hard to mock Hooke. He was England’s Leonardo, Sec. of Royal Society, and also a great scientist, in many fields, some of which he founded. He also invented the spring watch… He was rather similar to Newton (who was more mathematical). Correspondence between both show they were still confused about the Aristotle-Buridan throw of an object in the air… early on.

          Alexis Clairaut, mathematician and astronomer eminent in his own right, after reviewing what Hooke had published on gravitation. “One must not think that this idea … of Hooke diminishes Newton’s glory… The example of Hooke” serves “to show what a distance there is between a truth that is glimpsed and a truth that is demonstrated”.

          Besides, it’s not so clear all what Newton really proved (he had lots of trouble with Gauss theorem….)

    Yesterday’s essay was stunning. Today’s poetry sums it up very well. Wow, yes!
