Alphabet Spaces

In my mind rambles

ideas which seek to unscramble

and grant me crystal clear consistency

but the more I try to wrangle

ideas about Physics and Religion

the more they metamorphosize

into same and similar.

The more I learn about anything

the less I know about the whole

of any and all disciplines;

so I succumb to debates about

T's and I's

while forgetting my alphabet.

For example, if I take my own name

and examine it minutely,

space and letter

nano-space by nano-space

I cannot ever

see a whole word or letter.

Therefore, I come away nameless and confused.

So if I wish to learn the whole

of any disciple or subject-area

I have learned

best not to get too smart about

the spaces between the alphabets.

Yet, and this my conundrum, no letter

is ever apparent

unless there are spaces between Alpha and Omega.

So, too, music is a relationship between the sound and the silences-

too much music or sound is ultimately just noise or silence.

So in my mind rambles all these inconsistencies-

what about yours?

So we have the letters of an alphabet, and the spaces in between the letters

which are necessary to understand the words they form and from these empty spaces in between, much like silence and sound form music.

From this relationship we form the words and ultimately sentences, but note sentences alone do not form coherent paragraphs or pages for that matter and ultimately a book.

So what is the moral here? Pay attention to the background as well as the foreground, the seen and unseen since only from these relationships can we glean, true meaning:

too much concentration on the latter, and we miss the meaning embedded in the former.

True creativity means we are versatile in both and it is also  the perfect metaphor for  the differences and similarities between Science and Religion.
