"The glory, jest and riddle of the world"--
So Alexander Pope defined mankind,
Aware that through the universe we're swirled,
Yet of our species' end or aim quite blind.
Though conscious of our consciousness, we grope
To grasp and comprehend the mind
That we possess and find its farthest scope,
While wondering how it came to be designed.
Or was mind first, a spirit that gave birth
To all materiality throughout
The universe, including this, our Earth?
We theorize but still remain in doubt--
Though maybe now at last it's growing clear
Just why and how and wherefore we are here.
