Written In The Stars

'fore the Nile flowed from primal spring    
Or mountains rose heavenward to sing † † † †
Nor yet of stellar dust earth was spun † † †  
Before sun and stars had first begun † † †  
† † †
Before the galaxies first did flare † † † †
Still unlaid the compass and the square † † † †
When outer darkness claimed this place † † † †
When all that was, was a void in space † † †  
† † †
A singularity's proposed † † †
To explain what no one really knows † † † †
So lets ask a question to be fair † † † †
How many universes are really there † † †  
† † †
It's said nature obeys certain laws † † †  
So who wrote laws before nature was † † † †
Or existed seven dimensions † † †  
So forgive my misapprehensions † † †  
† † †
What caused the spark that gave forth light † †  
And why is dark called eternal night † †  
When nothing was, was all clean slate † †  
I can't comprehend a "nothing" state † †  
† † †
Speak to me of ancient mysteries † † † †
Written with diamonds upon ebony † † † †
Undergirdding all and overarching † † †  
Secrets which guide our life of searching † † †
† † †
"As above" say seekers, "so below" † † †
And its what's above I long to know † †  
Conjecture the curvature of space † †  
Space is an inner and outer place † †  
† † †
Every space governed by it's laws † †  
And to each then, its own primal cause † †  
For every cause comes it's own effect † †  
Ignorance is bliss, not intellect † †  
† † †
To ask childlike, what began it all † †  
About things we don't know what to call † †  
When "all" implies more than we foresaw † †  
In grown ignorance instead of awe † †  
† † †
It's the fixed leg holds the center place † †  
The movable that draws line through space † †  
One eternal round a circle makes † †  
Center, line, circle, then mark six breaks † †  
† † †
With the square, water and fire unite † †  
Upon the circle where marks alight † † †
From the first primeval point a star † †  
And at its center a shield safeguards † †  
† † †
A shield, to others a royal seal † †  
What's squaring the circle mean for real † †  
A circle, a star, a seal, a shield † † †
How do these lead to a quantum field † †  
† † †
In life not all's chance but all is choice † †  
The first cause of light came by a voice † †  
Vibrational science frequencies † †  
Are geometry of sound secrecies † †  
† † †
A given partical of matter † † †
Acts like a wave sans an observer † †  
But observers collapse the wave † †  
Simply observing how it behaves † †  
† † †
So is element somehow aware † †  
And then awareness to every sphere † †  
Or does through all one awareness flow † †  
The mystics, "so above, so below" † †  
† † †
What lies to point behind the shield † †  
What first gave light to heavens field † †  
Is this a multi-verse or just one † †  
What reality weaves becomes undone † †  
† † †
I love to look at night upon the stars † †  
Though I can only glimpse so far † †  
But what I see tells me there is more † †  
Than is seen on near or farther shore † †  
† † †
† † †
† † †
