Writers who explore the poetry and language of transformation often talk about the need to break down the barriers that artificially separate science and art – being willing to dispel some of the myths and notions of the scientific and the creative.
One writer described it as getting unstuck from a 3-dimentional mindset and being moved by the wonder of day to-day life; for example, not just thinking about a natural process like photosynthesis, but to be awestruck by the fact that photosynthesis even happens.
For the poet, the capacity for wonder is a gateway, a portal to the experience of what it is to be alive. It’s becoming a conduit to unleashing the energy from the realms of potential into the kinetic – something that moves, propels, and motivates others.
Quantum mechanics brings me back to the sense that we really have no idea what's going on here. We get glimpses once in a while, and we're blessed with those glimpses. And part of what we're here to do is be those sensory beings on the outpost bringing that information back for the rest of humanity.
