“When did ‘all that is’ think of ‘another’?” I ask,
And “What was there before that?” Does anyone know?
These are called ‘spacetime’ questions and have no answer.
Because of this they are but a doubt enhancer.
Fatefully existential, it is with sorrow
That our reality is a thing to unmask.
Space and time have their geometric qualities.
All events can be calculated where the two
Sets of numbers get intermixed in such a way
As to show they are linked. It is believed that they
Form a completed spacetime puzzle. It is true
That one can understand this with relative ease.
Each one separate and both together are called
A continuum. There are no missing spaces
And all instants of time exist. All are in place.
Every particle that exists in time and space
Can be traced, and the world of science embraces
This idea completely. Indeed they’re enthralled…
…As am I. I’m no scientist. I’m just someone
Who is part of this puzzle. Our spacetime is part
Of ‘all there is.’ The reverse can never be true
So the questions one might ask, carefully thought through,
Can be answered intuitively from the heart.
Contemplating existence can be lots of fun.
