|Unpardon me but I relent it boldly;
For it is far ahead, if I can be sure of it,
And far it is, that my hallucination be valid,
And hallucination it is, as it should be,
And however, unlike itself, mysterious, unknown, and untested,
So it be foreseen in my tireless search.

|I don't know but like love how you ask it!
I watched a show last night about the birth of a new planet
and our infantile earth was said to have been slammed into by a planet named Thea (i many have spelled that wrong)
It was really amazing and awesome how they gave visuals
and how the crust of earth spewed into space
and then that debri collected (in time) and formed a ball of rock
that we all love to adore "the moon" and what pulls it all together
as a "possibility" is that the moon dust & rocks are the same as the earths crust...wow...I know that leaves little room for god
but still it is fascinating...
Moon Walks & Light Years
oh and one more thing, they were able to tell by some fossil corral
colonies that due to the orbital speed of the tide & the moon being so close to move the tides over 100 mph 1 year was close to 24 hours
yeah...wild I am dizzy :) xx

|Good Question, "Einstein or Aristotle
or What?", Nice work, thanks for sharing.

|Your poem is thought provoking at the least. Wonderful work, as usual. I, too, will have to go with "or what". I think the debate of when the world began will go on as long as there are men who wish to argue the point.

|I like the idea of Einstein's that there was nothing, and then, out of nowhere, !!!!!BANG!!!!! --one word spoken by the unseen Creator (The greatest poet of all), simply using His imagination, and then, commanding His galactic ink, put pen to the blackness, and said, "BE". --Charlie (I love how you think, Gene)|

|What? Is What God in this instance? All the theorising in the world and technological advances can only take us back - HYPOTHETICALLY - to what is, indisputeably, fact. We are here from nothing, i.e. chaos, so why do we continue to insist that there can be no God-being-him-wot-fired-the-gun-and-who-is-beyond-our-understanding-yet-not-impossible-to-know? Wasn't it Galileo who said something like "We can understand how go the heavens but not how the heavens go"? Poor old God gets blamed for everything and credited with nothing but, perhaps after all, he's the biggest hotshot of 'em all...?? I'm off to consult The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy to remind myself what Zaphod Beeblebrox has to say on the matter... I think he was an Einstein-ist as I seem to remember that 42 came into it somewhere... !! :)) xx|

|Gene, I too have to go with "or What", that gives me much more room to let my imagination go...as always superb poetry my friend.
Love and peace Gene, Carole~

|As far as I'm concerned there has never been nothing, there has always been something. Even the Bible starts with the Earth covered with water in an empty universe. Man cogitates and extrapolates far too definitively in linear time, how it started, how it evolves - timelessness is the key. A thing that is hard to get our puny minds around. or WHAT? The Christ of Creation. Cool thoughts. richard|

|I opt for the 'or What' as well.. great writing that leaves us to question... well done! Myrna|

Interesting take on the beginning of the world. At the end you say Einstein or Aristotle, or What. I choose What. Because who really knows? Great write.
|Reviewed by Axilea MU
|I have no idea, Gene. Could that be because we can't understand it? We have been trying for so long... What do you choose?
|Reviewed by Jon Willey
|"or What?", of course! -- with "or what", I can judiciously(?) apply hyperbole and instantly romanticize the event(?) -- with Aristotle's polymath and Einstein's E=MC 2 I become grounded in hard data that eventually dulls my senses -- Gene you have created my "big bang" for the day and it is decidedly a fortuitous asset my dear friend --EMW = poetry to be savored -- I bid you love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael|

|Your timing with this thought challenge
couldn't be better, Gene, the day the Nobel
for Physics was awarded to three who've
determined the definite expansion of the universe,
accelerating away to where or what? Is it being
pulled apart by an even greater universe so many trillions
of light years distant we can't see or by a gigantic force
of dark matter?
I love how you see and how you force me to think.
