The Theory of Everything
"I think we have a good chance of surviving    
long enough to colonize the solar system."
~ Stephen Hawking    
The alchemy of    
modern physics rests  
in general relativity—  
the gravity of understanding  
a Universe at large:    
galaxies, clusters, stars  
all holding position;  
and, quantum mechanics—  
smaller scale being:    
sub-particles, atoms, molecules  
electromagnetic forces  
occupying form    
The two are incompatible    
within a diminutive scale—  
planckions of tiny black holes;  
and an initial Big Bang    
Deeper frameworks of reality    
must be discovered    
to harmoniously integrate    
both into a unifying    
Theory of Everything  
Stardust drifts in our bones—  
atoms, sub-atomic particles:  
neutrons, protons, electrons    
vibrating musical strings    
of gravitational mergings—  
creating, and re-creating    
our bodies over and again  
throughout lifetimes  
until fully fused as ONE—  
tearing assunder the veil  
we so long believed separated
infinite and unknown
dimensions between us
