We come
in,
an empty
vessel.
A dry
sponge.
Absorbing
all in our
sphere.
Attitudes,
ideas,
beliefs.
Different locations.
Different beliefs.
Gospel.
All taken
as gospel.
Why?
Why
different areas
different
beliefs?
Isolation.
Isolation
bred different
beliefs.
Primitive ideas
superstitious
ideas, based
on fear.
Revolving
around
the primitive.
Revolving
around
fear, superstition.
We believe!
We believe
what we’re
told.
Then retell.
Time to
question.
Time to
question
everything.
John Prophet Jan 29
From afar.
Approaching
from afar.
A distant
place.
A different
place.
Slowly moving.
Moving
toward
an unknown.
Small,
so small
it seems
from afar.
Moving
closer, seeing
more.
Strange.
Different, alien.
Closer still
frozen in
structure
belief.
Local belief.
Convinced in
its place.
In its tiny
place.
Closer still.
Writhing structure.
Writhing in
Ignorance.
Ignorant
yet sure,
so sure of
truth.
Knows not
of truth.
Knows not
of much
at all.
John Prophet Oct 2017
We are born
into an
unknown
world.
Slowly
we learn
as we go.
Taught by
those who
came before.
Who in turn
we're taught
by those who
came before.
Generation after
generation
passing
knowledge
forward.

Knowledge
differed
region
by region.
Belief systems
differed
region by
region.

The common
link
in all this?
The
knowledge
passed
had its
roots
in beliefs of
ancient people,
people who
we're
gripped
by fear.
Fear of
the world they
were born into.
Fear of the
unknown
Fear of death.

Today we still
fear the
unknown.
We still fear
death.

Until we
conquer
our fears,
we can not
move forward.
If we can not
move forward,
we'll be
devoured
by our
future.
John Prophet Dec 2016
The meaning of life?
This question has been asked for millennia.
Some say there is no meaning, life is just a placeholder between oblivions.
Others say God breathe life into man for a greater purpose, intimately meaningful.
For some, born in sickness or poverty life can be a miserable go. For others, life can be a beautiful fulfilling experience.
Did God choose which was which? Did God purposely condemn some poor souls to ultimate misery, while granting others bliss?
Would we intentionally deal with our own children in such a way?
To me, at least, this seems unlikely from a loving God. So why is this so? Is it just the luck of the draw from an uncaring expanse, the machine we call the universe?
Are we all just tossed into the mix to hope for the best, make do with the cards dealt?
Base on observation this seems closer to the mark, but
who can say for sure?
Aliens.
Where are
they?
Here,
all here.
Ever changing.
Ideas, beliefs,
ever changing.
Alien.
All here.
All alien.
Not out
there.
Right here.
Morphing.
Evolving.
Alien.
Unrecognizable.
Looking back,
looking forward.
What
we were
is not what
we are.
What
we are
is not
what we
will be.
Alien.
Beliefs alien
ideas alien.
Morphing
evolving,
becoming.
All alien.
Not out there.
Here.
All the Aliens
here.
Glimmer of
similar.
Yet alien.
Traveling time.
Aliens dotting
time forward
and back.
Similar
but not.
Spacetime
in one place.
Traveling
spacetime
in one place.
All Aliens
reside in
one place.
Alien!

What the human mind can conjure.There is a Creator, in my mind there is no doubt. To some degree I can know a mans mind, but the Creators mind is beyond mine to know. There are charlatans amongst us who’ll tell us they know.The Creator told them so. Religions will show you the way, so they will say. Hundreds of religions will tell you they are the one. How can that be? They all can’t agree? Odds are none of them know. Religion like Government is a human construct to offer control. The few telling the many what to do, how to behave and believe. Power tripping is all they truly have. There may be an afterlife, but there’s no guarantee. We could have been made to live, expire, then no more. I do not know either way. So, what do we do while we are here? We get up off our knees and show our existence had some value, some worth. Work to make our world a better place to live. Open our minds to a better way to be. Humanity and Gaia for now is all we truly have, make this existence as good as can be. Pray to the Creator if you wish, I do In bed every night. I don’t need a religion to do so. What will you say on the day you expire. Can you look in a mirror, will you really even care? Will your life even matter?
John Prophet Feb 2018
How it
changes
as
time
flows on.
All that
we
know
we
discover
we
don’t.
More
knowledge
begets less
understanding.
I
dance
on a
precipice.
The edge
of knowledge
knowing I’ll
never really
know
a thing.
John Prophet Dec 2016
Took a walk with my dog Rosie the other day.
Walked by the orchard on the hill that we go by on our stroll, stopped to look back as I always do. It’s a very pleasant sight regardless of the season. The trees lined up in rows with the sky as a backdrop.
Today as I stared a warm breeze licked my face and that’s when it happened. That combination of events, for the briefest of moments I was taken back in time and remembered how it felt to be 5 years old again. Remembered how it felt before the scars of life were etched on my soul. Remembered the sound of the birds on that warm summers day in my backyard so many years ago. The innocence of thought…. then it was gone. It lasted but the briefest of a moments, barely at all. It was breathtaking. Little by little life takes the innocence away, little by little life piles on until the innocence is gone. It happens slowly but it adds up over time. It’s time that takes the innocence away.
Ultimately, it’s time that will take it all away.
John Prophet Oct 2017
We are
animals.
Civilization,
thousands of
years in the
making.
The animal,
millions of
years in

Animal instincts
etched into
each cell
of our being.
Survival,
procreation,
deeply
embedded
into our
souls.
We think
ourselves
apart from,
superior,
but we are
animals,
just like the rest.
Civilization
in constant
war with the
animal.
The rules of the
jungle
do not
square
with the
rules of
civilization.
Millions

The instincts
of the animal
difficult to
mollify.
We think

We are

John Prophet Oct 2018
We

Having the

Law of the

Hormones flush

Procreation,

strongest of

We think

Conflicting,

The anthropologist
came a great
distance to
observe and
study the
recently discovered
subjects.
Nothing was
know about them
Nothing at all.
The anthropologist
was anxious to
get to
work to
set up the
study. The
work would
be intense and
arduous.
Nothing like
these subjects
had ever been
seen before.
In fact finding
them was kismet
being discovered
by exploring a new
region.
Once discovered
the study
was organize
and set in
motion.
The anthropologist
stayed hidden
the observed
had no clue.
First observation.
Their habitat was
covered with
the subjects.
Every nook
and cranny.
The anthropologist
soon learned
the subjects of
the study began
to alarm.
The violence
unlike
anything the
anthropologist
had ever
seen.
Millions slaughtered
in conflict.
The observed
****
in the name
of their
god.
****
for what some
believed
or how some
looked.
Appalled
the anthropologist
could no longer
watch such
depravity and
shut the study
down.
Leaving
the planet,
warning beacons
stationed
at the edges
of the
Solar System
warning all
away.
The message,
locals too
violent,
isolate and
shun for
all existence.
Prompting
the subjects
to ask.
“Where is everyone?”
Little knowing
they were
left for
dead.
John Prophet Dec 2017
Where did you
come from?
Every ancestor
you ever had,
had to beget
with who they
begot.
If any link
in the chain
begot
with someone different.
If someone turned
left instead of right.
You’d not be
here today.
By being here today
you won the
infinity lotto.
Or
Some say
this place
we exist in
is just one of
many.
They say
in fact the
number of realities
existing in
parallel is
infinite.
Different links
in
differnt
chains,
infinitely so.
It was,
therefore,
inevitable
you’d appear in
at least one.
Or
You,
your soul,
your spirit,
your
conciseness is eternal.
Moving
though different
realms of existence
for any number
of reasons.
Maybe
you have
much to learn
before you arrive.
Maybe
immortality
gets dull and boring.
You live finite packets
of reality
infinitely
with no
connection
to keep things
fresh and interesting.
Or
Maybe
something else
is going on.
A finite mind
can’t
know all
the infinite
makes possible.
Since you
can’t know
what’s possible,
anything is possible!

Why
arrogance?
Some, believe
themselves
superior, better
than others.
Why?
Money makes
some arrogant.
Power makes
some arrogant.
Birthright makes
some arrogant.
Arrogance alters
perceptions,
perceptions of
reality.
Creates mindset
of privilege.
Privilege
to do
whatever the
arrogant want.
Arrogance is
weakness,
mental weakness.
Falling to the
desires
of our
darker angles.
Succumbing
to conceit
and smugness.
Arrogance
displays total
lack of
decency
towards others.
When arrogance
is no more,
humanity ascends.
John Prophet Jul 2018
Ascent of

From

From the

Good vs Evil.
Rocket fuel

Goodness not

Explosive mixture

Frozen

Falling

Fading.
Fading,

like no other. Tiny blue speck in a void unfathomably large.
Self aware beings truly not aware of much.
Self impressed with no reason to be.
Obsessed with *** and violence driving forces of existence.
Compression point coming.
Evolution of thought and reality speeding forward like never before, moving at such speed it could easily fly off the rails.
How to manage the transition is the quest. New driving forces must prevail, the old ones will explode it all. Hate and hormones must be exchanged for a global philosophy of humanism that benefits all.
Technology will be the key. Will it be controlled by the few or the many? Will central masters dictate or will mass communication win the day. Will it be a global dictatorship or universal democracy? Will Humanism prevail or will religious/ governmental oligarchies subjugate? The future is fluid. Humanism must prevail, or dystopia it will be.

Where is here?
What is here?
Is it all
there is?
Believe what
we see?
Is there more?
Is it
really that
simple?
What’s outside,
beyond our view?
Our reality
fixed, set
in place.
Immortal beings,
are we.
Old beyond time,
infinite matrixes
to explore.
Moving from
one, to another.
No connection
between.
Keeping immortality
fresh and new.
John Prophet Dec 2016
I hear the birds talking to me.
Chickadee, Chickadee, Chickadee Dee Dee Dee.
This one is telling me his name.
As I take my walks with my dog Rosie up by the orchard on the hill,
I hear another bird saying thank you, thank you, thank you.
As if he was happy to be alive.
As we continue our walk I hear another saying let’s go, let’s go, let’s go.
Sounds like he’s asking his troop to move on.
If you take time to slow down get out of the rat race for a time,
you can hear Mother Earth Gaia talking to you in so many ways.
John Prophet Jun 8
Harmonious.
One with
creation.
Piece
of the
puzzle.
Unsure.
Unsure
what part.
Creation
within,
beating within.
Coursing
through
each
created part.
Part of the
puzzle.
Part
of the
whole.
Placement
unknown
unsure.
Blended.
All parts
blended.
Flowing
through
origin.
Passing
through being.
Passing one
to the next.
All connected.
One to the
other to
the whole.
Absorb creation
Absorb
it all.
Feel it in
every fiber of
being.
Creation.
Creation
flows one
to the
next.
Connected.
Blended
to the
whole..
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!
John Prophet Sep 2019
Universal incubation.
Crucible of
creation.
Womb of
god.
Stars
manufacture,
elements created,
gravity congeals.
Planets form,
life sparks,
intelligence evolves.
Link
in the
chain.
Technology
develops,
evolves
explodes.
Information technology,
Nanotechnology,
Biotechnology.
Artificial intelligence,
Genie released.
Exponential growth.
Exponential intelligence
growth.
Global brain,
Galactic brain,
Universal brain.
Infinite mind.
God.
John Prophet Aug 2018
Some say
we’re born,
we live,
then die.
That’s it.
One grasp
at the
brass
ring.
That’s all.
Therefore,
do whatever
it takes to
come out
on top.
Step on,
step over
do whatever
to win.
Why not!
The ones
with the most
toys in
the end
win!
I
wonder.
Small thinking,
limited.
Is reality
really so
simple?
Is it
all so
selfish?
Does
humanity have
the gravitas to
know such
things?
Karma,
could reality
be more
nuanced?
Probably so.
Children
of the void
are we.
Much to
learn.
John Prophet Apr 2017
Like a bottle

into a

sea,

I toss thee

into the

infinite.


The never

ending roll

of waves that

make up a

brave

new brine.


Like a bottle

into a sea,

I toss thee

into a new

roil.


I toss thee

into Cyberspace,

I toss thee into

infinity.
John Prophet Nov 2018
It’s all
in your
head.
The world,
everything,
it’s all
in your
head.
All that
you know,
or think
you know.
It’s all
in your head.
Every head
its own
world.
No two
worlds
alike.
Every head
its own
universe.
No two
universes
alike.
No two the
same.
Each, unique
each, different
unto itself.
None,
live in
the same
world.
None
live in
the same
universe.
Each different,
none,
the same!
It’s all
in your
head!
John Prophet Oct 2018
Clean slate
at birth.
Filled up,
programed
over time.
Information
force fed,
pushed into
minds.
Created.
Created by
location,
environment.
Information
from the
past.
Ancient
information
told as truth.
Whose truth?
Earthly truths,
limited in
nature.
Billions
of galaxies,
one speck of
dust.
Most not
known, much
incorrect.
How to move
forward?
Understand,
we know
little.
Much of it
wrong.
Question
everything.
Accept nothing
as fact!
Clear the mind
of ancient
thought.
See infinity
straight on
and rethink
it all!
John Prophet Jun 2018
The
mind is a
conduit.
From there
to here
things move
along.
From the
ether things
are pulled,
formulated
and produced.
Our
reality is
filling up
being
produced
from
nothing!
No mind,
no conduit,
no reality,
no nothing!
Our reality
comes out of
nowhere.
The mind
grabs nothing
to create
everything!
John Prophet Dec 2016
Summertime hot, bright yellow star blazing. Day after day suns rays relentless.
Heatwave in full swing, no rain in site.
Bright blue up above, no clouds in the view.
Everything drying up turning brown and crunchy.
Crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch.
Crunch, crunch goes the brown crunchy grass as I walk.
Crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch.
John Prophet Dec 2019
Bubbles
within
bubbles.
Existence
within
bubbles.
Everything
ever­ywhere
in a bubble.
All known,
all conceived
in tiny
space,
programmed
space.
Visions of
grandeur,
visions of
control,
visions of
power
all visions
of insignificance.
Unimpressed.
Infinity
unimpressed.
Ancient ideas.
Ideas from
limited concepts.
Civilization awash
in limited
ancient concepts.
Change washing
over all.
Old ways
fading.
Power bases
eroding.
Global connections
global brain,
inflating concepts.
Expanding bubble
ready to pop.
John Prophet Dec 2016
One day we open our eyes and there it is.
The world opens up to us, all that we can see.
We move within our view, learning as we go.
But can we trust what we see? Is it real? What is "real" anyway? Does anyone really know? Quantum scientists tell us at the quantum level reality is probabilistic. What? The fundamental nature of reality cannot be determined? Does this mean reality has no substance and all we see is just an illusion? Are we constructs in a fuzzy reality that's just a sum of probabilities. Are we just ghosts in a universe of possibilities? What are the odds of that?
John Prophet Dec 2018
Black holes
spinning.
Radiation
pulsing.
Explosions.
Exploding,
elements
created.
Gravity.
Gravi­ty
collapsing.
Collapsing
the brew.
Creations
cauldron, mixing
coalescing
creating.
Creators
spark ignited.
Ignited
it all.
Violent.
Creations,
violence.
Violent beyond
comprehension.
Mixing.
Creators
ladle
furiously
mixing.
Finally.
Finally it
moves,
twitches.
Out of the
cauldron,
out of the
violence
delicate
life emerges.
Born out
of flame.
Born out
out radiation.
Born.
Miracle
John Prophet Dec 2019
Center of
all things.
Beliefs
archaic,
simplistic,
unfounded.
Oblivious
to all that
matters.
Limited in
nature and
scope.
Local beliefs,
ideas,
small in design.
Mind ,
simple,
limited in
structure.
Sees in small
bites.
Unable to
comprehend
beyond its
architecture.
Like fish
in a bowl.
Only so much
to know.
John Prophet Sep 2019
How
would it be
different?
How will
it change?
Animal world.
We live in
animal world.
We are animals,
built our world
as animals would.
How could
we not?
Instincts guide
our actions.
Procreation,
self preservation,
*** and violence
shape our
narrative.
How
will that
change
when it/they
arrive?
Where
procreation
and self preservation
hold no sway.
How will
non animal
intelligence
comprehend?
When artificial
intelligence
or alien
intelligence
arrives how
will it relate?
Can it
relate?
Will it even
try?
Will it see
the animal as
primitive,
unkept,
unworthy?
Will the animal
be replaced?
Replaced by
the next step
In evolution.
Best to stay
low,
under brush
and avoid the
encounter.
But,
that’s what
an animal
would do!
Best
to meet
the unknown
head on
I’d say
and let
come what
may,
less we’re
always the
shrew under
the rock.
John Prophet Mar 10
Here.
We are
here.
Don’t know
why.
Don’t know
how.
Fear.
Fear of the
unknown.
Fear.
Eyes opened
seeing.
Believing
needing,
following.
Unsure.
What to do?
Who to
listen to?
Who to
trust,
believe?
Who knows
anything?
Charlatans
all.
Knowing nothing.
Game.
All just
a game.
Power.
Control.
Looking

learning.
Knowing
nothing­.
Why?
Why anything
at all?
