Was it all figured out in the time of Socrates?


Socrates Furiously Sleeps

Rainbows collapse into molten ooze
As lodge sweat purges the ignorance forever
And minds coalesce into white-hot light
Urging the searing truth of falsehood

As melting cools
Resistance to truth is defenseless
The resonance of dreams awaken
To all but those who deny their beingness

Socrates Furiously Sleeps and patiently waits

It is possible, and quite likely, that it had been "figured out," and I came to understand it all also, as I described int "Experience as Shadow."
