A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature
I suppose we would think there’s only one, a mono-God, one particle over all, everlasting, though lost for eons, some incredible length of God time, particle time, creation time, but not eternity, because that’s out of time. This god particle, if found, might provide light and warmth, or another weapon capable of ending time as we know it and sending us into the dark where even a God can’t save us. Imagine, till then, the God particle swinging on strings through space like Tarzan on his vines, and we too traversing this quantum universe with some, but not Tarzanic, dexterity, haunted by spooky actions at a distance, disappointed by truths, fleeting; promises that expand and collapse into new worlds of doubt. Gods—Mighty and Merciful, Infinite, Eternal, One and Many.
