growth amid decay,
the new from the old:
climbing to the stars...
what Knowledge gets passed down
and what Knowledge gets discarded:
a billion ancestors wondered
each entrenched within a world view...
what is the goal for humanity,
everyone arguing from their point of view:
a fireball wiped out the dinosaurs
our only recourse to live under many suns...
the Earth like a ripe blossom,
a pod overflowing with seed:
building steam and ready to pop,
fecundity on countless new worlds...
