Bang -- Material Matters With a bang I began When time began, And space and energy and matter, Structure emerged Alchemist stars Birthing weighty matter, And through the dance of deep time, To the rhythm of implacable laws, Complexity reached consciousness: Cognito, ergo sum. But before, My influence was spread across light-years; Across the Universe, Inside stars, In supernovas I was a mover and a shaker: Cosmic Man. I began with a bang, My mother and my father Starting a DNA dance And my matter finally mattered: But I am not the man I used to be I've changed, Everything I am today Is inherently unstable In transit. The dancing elements that comprise what I am; In transit until burning obliteration If time has duration, Or in transit cold, cold, cold unwinding Seperation and disintegration A perhaps almost infinitely quieter succession of echoes. The eternally increasingly boring universe hypothesis; James Dean Or universal Alzeiher's. It doesn't matter There will be no matter as generally understood either way. que sera sera There is matter now, I matter You are matter, you matter Enjoy it, breath it, matter in a moral way.
