A pondering from "Politics, Poetry and Love in the Obama Age"

He said;

his arm flowing outward;

'The problem of the 21st Century

is the Indefinite Pronoun.

We're all everyone and no one

indefinite;

pronoun, but not a noun

the universal vagueness

of time, meaning, and identity,

rather like the cloud of electrons

flying around the nucleus of the atom

there and not there;

but capable of being anywhere

or in two places at the same time;

holding many beliefs constantly shifting,

feeling fervently one thing and its opposites

the next minute,

being who am I this minute

and not who I am the next minute;

in a world changing fast

speeding up

and speeding up faster

and faster;

indistinct;

shadowy

flashing lights

spark

racing by

approaching

and not approaching the speed of light.

There I'm me, us

none of us; we,

I

have said it;

both me?

    

                              The Indefinite Pronoun Defined

'Singular: another, anybody, anyone, anything, each, either, everybody, everyone, everything, little, much, neither, nobody, no one, nothing, one, other, somebody, someone, something

Plural: both, few, many, others, several.

Singular or Plural: all, any, more, most, none, some'

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is this a bizarre definition or what?

More bizarre, if this definition is literally true .

Modern Physics says this definition is literally true ;

an accurate description of us and the universe

in which we live,

things popping in and out of existence.

We live in this universe and most likely have to come to

understand, like the indefinite pronoun,

we too, as individuals

and as collectives,

pop in and out of existence.

Not duality,

but multiplicities.

How else to explain

how we can harbor contradictory

beliefs;

sometimes many many

in a single day?

And feelings too.

Am I changed in all of this

or merely your view of me?

Devil or Saint?

Depends apparently

upon what

time it is.
