Is it Ok to share a Poem? delete me if not, no hard feelings

Beyond the boundaries of established science an avalanche of exotic ideas compete for our attention. Experts tell us that these ideas should not be permitted to take up the time of working scientists, and for the most part they are surely correct. But what about the gems in the rubble pile? By what ground-rules might we bring extraordinary new possibilities to light?

*Astrolonomy*
The Universe an energetic,
plasmoid spawning stew.
Where Stellar bodies are electric,
nodes connecting to-
the Earthly atoms' microscopic,
charges coming through -
Moving cuircuts of magnetic,
vortices to You.

ground control to major Tom,

take your protein pills and put your helmet on...

sorry couldn't resist.

Poems are fine by me, of course I'm just a hobo...
The secret to the universe is a rubber band.

Good work. Hope there are more! :D
I went through a poetic love fest years back, the EU thinking got me so outside my box.
The most exciting phrase to hear in science,
the one that heralds new discoveries,
is not 'Eureka!' but 'That's funny...'

Pretty cool.

How do you feel about somebody including it in their own book, in the prologue or something like that? (Giving you credit, of course.)

Thanks for sharing.

Excellent poem! Reminded me of one Maxwell penned.

My soul’s an amphicheiral knot
Upon a liquid vortex wrought
By Intellect in the Unseen residing,
While thou dost like a convict sit
With marlinspike untwisting it
Only to find my knottiness abiding;

Since all the tools for my untying
In four-dimensioned space are lying,
Where playful fancy intersperses
Whole avenues of universes;
Where Klein and Clifford fill the void
With one unbounded, finite homaloid,
Whereby the Infinite is hopelessly destroyed.

But when thy Science lifts her pinions
In Speculation’s wild dominions,
I treasure every dictum thou emittest;
While down the stream of Evolution
We drift, and look for no solution
But that of the survival of the fittest.
Till in that twilight of the gods
When earth and sun are frozen clods,
When, all its energy degraded,
Matter in æther shall have faded,
We, that is, all the work we’ve done,
As waves in æther, shall for ever run
In swift-expanding spheres, through heavens
beyond the sun.

Great Principle of all we see,
Thou endless Continuity!
By thee are all our angles gently rounded;
Our misfits are by thee adjusted,
And as I still in thee have trusted,
So let my methods never be confounded!
O never may direct Creation
Break in upon my contemplation,
Still may the causal chain, ascending,
Appear unbroken and unending,
And, where that chain is lost to sight
Let viewless fancies guide my darkling flight
Through Æon-haunted worlds, in order infinite.
