its place.
As constituted
limited.
Limited by
ignorance.
Limited by
delusion.
Limited by
the animal.
Understanding,
clouded!

The Machine
John Prophet Jan 22
The
machine,
billions of
years in the
making.
Our very
being
to the
molecular level
fabricated,
wired,
controlled.
Controlled by
the machine,
the system.
Fabricated,
simply
fabrications
are we
by the
system.
Like machines
mired
by the
hardware
influenced
by the
software.
Products
of the
environment.
All we know
programmed.
How we’re wired
predetermined.
Everything
scripted by
the system.
The machine’s
system.
Freedom
an illusion.
All just
components.
Widgets within,
simply
functioning
as designed.

Ethereal Mist
John Prophet Jan 21
The
thinness of
things, of
reality.
Wafer thin.
Perceived
reality.
Depth lacking.
Not
textured.
Awareness
not textured,
not deep.
Not
nearly enough.
Understanding
shallow, limited.
A vapor
in the black.
Little to
work with,
much to
understand.
Primitive nature
governing,
holding
in place,
controlling events.
Unfinished business,
invisible
answers.
Beyond reach.
Easily deluded.
Paper thin the
contest.
Misinformed the
results.
Jan 19 · 27
Drop
John Prophet Jan 19
We are
custom made.
Custom made
for this
place,
from this
place.
What we
know,
who we
are,
what we
think,
indigenous.
Springing up
from the
core,
squeezing
through
the rocks,
out of the
mud.
Primordial scream!
Our senses,
how we relate
predetermined
by this place.
Every fiber of
our being
determined
by a mote of
dust lost
in infinity.
Programmed
by uncertainty.
Following instincts
layered
onto our
souls.
Believing
we are free.
Free in a prison,
a preprogrammed
prison on a mote
in a void.
Life in a
drop of water.
All we consider
significant
isn’t.
Here,
is where
we bubbled
up.
Here,
is where we’ll
dry up.
A puff
of dust
in the breeze.
A blow to
the ego
this is.
A little
more humility
surely applies.

End
John Prophet Jan 17
End
When
will it
end?
I do not
know.
I do not
care.
Each moment
a miracle.
Each moment
a universe.
Enjoy every
snowflake,
every sunset,
every
bird song.
Infinite in
nature.
Not to be
missed.
Focus.
Focus on
all,
all that
surrounds.
Never
to be seen
again.
Never
to be
felt again.
Each moment
a gift,
not to be
squandered.
Once gone,
gone for good.
Each moment
happy or
sad, unique.
Each individually
unique.
Can’t be
shared.
Oblivion.
Inevitable
oblivion
soon enough.
Appreciate the
infinite
within.
Never to
be again.

Blue Genie
John Prophet Jan 16
Always there.
Always has been.
Holding firm,
controlling.
System set
to motivate,
control.
Simply
arranged
that way.
Designed to
stay alive,
move things
along.
Flowing
through the
machine,
lubricating.
Covering
the
mind.
Gets in
the way ,
altering
judgement.
Pushing buttons,
clouding the
soul.
Cares not
for societal
norms.
Never had to,
why start
now?
Blue Genie.
Constant
struggle.
Constant
struggle to
hold at
bay!

Freedoms Illusion
John Prophet Jan 14
Freedom,
what is it?
How free?
Original thought,
does it exist?
Is it rare?
My mind,
filled
with what was
poured in.
I could
believe
many things,
based on what
was poured in.
Where I was
born determines
what I
believe.
Local dogma
clouds my reality,
determines
what I
believe,
how I think.
I could be
many people,
believe many
things based
on what was
poured in.
Once the
cake’s baked,
fully formed,
how free
can it
possibly be?

Pulsing
John Prophet Jan 13
Civilizations built.
Decisions made.
Billions
of decisions!
Whether to
turn left,
whether to
turn right,
whether to
go straight.
Each has
consequences.
Energy
pulsing off
the planet.
Each second
decision energy
layering history.
Butterfly effect
a billion times
a second.
Second after
second, billions
upon billions
of decisions
made.
Decisions,
energy
pulsing into
the void.
History.
Human history
being built
as such.
Each decision
flows to its
own
unique future.
Billions of
unique
futures born
each second.
Second after
second.
Such is the
conundrum of
quantum mechanics.
Such is the
conundrum
of infinity.

Enjoyment
John Prophet Jan 8
Here,
we are all
here.
Don’t know
how.
Don’t know
why.
Fact remains,
we are all
here.
Men,
women
everybody.
Look around.
What to do?
What to do
with this
brief flash?
This brief
flash
of existence.
Power,
control,
at each other’s
throats.
Power,
control, all
just puffs
of dust.
Instantly,
just puffs
of dust.
What’s the
point?
Spending this
briefest
flash of
existence
at each other’s
throats.
Seems absurd.
Spend the
time in
enjoyment
peaceful enjoyment.
A brief flash
of enjoyment.
Seems to make
sense to me.

Jungle
John Prophet Jan 6
Pheromones
wafting,
hormones
charging.
Pulsating energy
abounds.
The jungle
breaths.
Rules apply,
wound inexorably
through countless
millennium.
Firmly ensconced.
Sophisticated
ignorance.
The animal
confused.
Confused
about
its place.
Confused
about what
it is.
The din
of the
jungle
beats within.
The beast.
Humanity
growls,
no different
from the rest.
Pheromones
wafting,
hormones
charging.

Wave
John Prophet Jan 3
Like a rolling
wave.
Generation after
generation
marching.
Marching to
oblivion.
Still they
come.
Conveyor belt
of humanity,
inexorably
crashing
on earthen
shore.
Each drop
irrelevant,
yet part
of larger
whole.
Each drop
lost in
time, yet
played its
role.
Each had
its time.
Its time
in the
light.
Then
in a blink,
each succumbed.
Forfeiting to
inevitability,
settling
into the
textured
substrate
of history.
Where
it all goes?
They’ll
never know.
Such is
their lot
in
reality.

Spun
John Prophet Dec 2019
Spun tight
are we.
Spun tight
in our
beliefs.
Spun tight
in our
brainwash.
Spun tight
in a world
awash in
ignorance.
Dealing with
a reality
not understood.
Convictions
evolved to make
sense.
Make sense
of what the
senses allow,
of the
jungle that
surrounds.
Evolved to
relieve angst,
have something
to hold on to,
cling
to in the
maelstrom.
Parroting
nonsense
generation
to generation.
Believing all
that’s
told.
Blinded with
local thought,
local prejudice.
Firm in our
acceptance.
Beliefs from
a dearth of
knowledge.
So sure.
So sure,
with no
reason
to be.
Infancy
still.

Barren
John Prophet Dec 2019
Barren.
Nowhere to go.
Limited.
Exploration proved
limited.
Science failed,
found no answers.
No way to travel
beyond local space.
Dead planets,
hunks of rocks.
Clinging to lifeless
radiation drenched
rocks.
Useless.
Could not
recreate Eden.
Looking out,
found no one,
nothing,
useless.
Looked within.
Began looking
within.
Within technology.
Within
virtual space.
Space with no
limits.
Created realms.
All,
Gardens of Eden.
No rules to
bog down.
Bog down
exploration.
No speed limits,
instantaneous.
Be anywhere
instantaneously.
With a thought
anywhere.
All went within.
Within
the machines.
Became one
with the virtual.
Crossing barriers,
domains.
Crossing dimensions.
virtual all.
Controlling time.
No limits,
personal paradise.
Found them.
That’s where
they were.
Found them
all.
Everyone was
within.
Within the
virtual, the
virtual multiverse.
Unlimited!
