My here is everything


(I really cannot recommend reading this - it makes your headache)


Where ere
I sit a’while
I’m
here”
-
Until I move
To over
“there”

-
But when I’m
“there”

I’m “here” again


Another place
But the same name
-
But what are names
I am not
“there”
-

For where
I place my chair
Is
“here”

-
From where I look
To over
“there”

Is always

here”
-
And all things else
Are always
“there”

-
It seems that there
Are lots of
“there”s

-
Places I
May place my chair
-
Some of them
Are far away
So far I need
The night to stay
-
So far from
“here”

I left before
I can no longer see
For sure
-
Then I imagine
Over
“there”
-

From where I sit
“here”
On my chair

-
But that is not
The same to me
As seeing
“there”

While seeing me
-
Although I can
See many
“there”s

I only see a single
“here”

-
And as it moves
Around with me
I think perhaps
What I must see
In fact is what
The world
Must be:

-
Just the bit
I see from
“here”

-
From where I sit
Upon my chair
-
Just the bit
In front of me
-
That changes
-
Simple imagery
-
So does that mean
That all the
“there”s
-

Are really part
Of
“here”
With me

-
For that would mean
Imagined
“there”s
Are nothing more
Than
Memories

-
If then the
“there”s
-

Are
“here”
With me
-

Wherever
“here”
I choose to be
-
Wherever
“here”

May really be
-
My “here”
Is
Everything

-
You see
-
Deception
Called
Reality

I KNOW nothing - that is the problem

I am just examining the evidence - which at the moment does'nt really seem to stand up to close scrutiny!

Egal..

I, like the view said...

I like that!

Egal Bohen said...

continuing the experiment.....

I am now imagining you both over "there" - but what evidence do I have of where "there" is or that either of you exist?

Your comments are here with me!
(Or someones comments are!)

(Mel, I am trying to imagine you further away that i,ltv but having difficulty with the "imagining" distance bit)

Is it worth the struggle?

Yes! - Otherwise we will never understand our existence

All sehr interesting..(said viz a german accent)

i,ltv, I am glad at least you like the poem!

You must wonder, with all that's going on in your life, what the significance of this discusion even is - I appologise - I do try to reflect on the subject only "occasionally"

Back to the bodily existence then..

Egal..

*nodding happily*
I'm here.....you're here, even though you're there...she's here, even though SHE's there, but a different there than your there even though you're both here.

HOW cool is THAT!
G'head and tell me I'm 'not all there'. LOL
