“The Imagination of Nature is Far, Far Greater Than the Imagination of Man.”

“Deep in the sea
all molecules repeat
the patterns of one another
till complex new ones are formed.
They make others like themselves
and a new dance starts…

…….

Stands at the sea,
wonders at wondering: I
a universe of atoms
an atom in the universe.”

– Richard Feynman, American Theoretical Physicist

“Sitting quietly, doing nothing, 

Spring comes, and the grass grows, by itself”.

― Matsuo Basho

From The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (1967) to The Endless River (2015) the Ceaseless Journey of Super-Fluid Points in the Quantum Foam: Pink Floyd and the Dynamics of Space-Time Unfolding

“Lime and limpid green, a second scene
A fight between the blue you once knew.
Floating down, the sound surrounds
Around the icy waters underground…”

(Astronomy Domine, Barrett, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, Pink Floyd)

……..

“Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
In a world of magnets and miracles

……..

Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
Though down this road we’ve been so many times

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
The taste was sweeter
The nights of wonder
With friends surrounded
The dawn mist glowing
The water flowing
The endless river

Forever and ever”.

(High Hopes, Album The Division Bell, 1994 /David Gilmour & Poly Samson)

What is ‘The Endless River’?

End -to-End its Endless – The River flows b/w you and me, b/w  ‘us and them’ connecting all points in spatial dimensions (Interconnected Causation & Effect Inseparability)

All things carried on it’s course:

Little  innate moments of glory and the dignified waste of life

the river fulfills itself by flowing

silence responds to sound

words are spoken, half forgotten and left finally to rest in this ceaseless stream

it’s like a dream

or a selfless motion of innumerable points that are still like one body that reverberates

learning to fly

or swim

in a universe which itself corresponds to a musical pattern

awakened like a boat on a river

you see endless companions side by side

all points in the whole texture of sound vibrating like the supernova

and every event is an endless river causing the event horizon to expand without expanding

when you realize this then all that is subjected to time becomes the timeless panorama of eternal moments

every sequence is ‘that’ spectra ‘experiencing’ itself in the form of a river

you are the river flowing without flowing

recollect the sweetness of the sound

and space is filled every inch of it, by this mysterious thing that flows

get attuned to it

its a never ending thing

THE LABOUR OF TIME IS THE PULSE OF ETERNITY

YOUR MIND IS THE ESSENTIAL RIVER -THE WHOLE UNIVERSE FLOATS ON IT BUT IT LEAVES NO IMPRESSION

LIFE IS ALL BLISS

THE PIPER HAS ARRIVED AT THE GATES OF DAWN!

 

“Remember a day before today                           
Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd

A day when you were young.
Free to play alone with time
Evening never came.
Sing a song that can’t be sung
Without the morning’s kiss
Queen – you shall be it if you wish
Look for your king Why can’t we play today
Why can’t we stay that way Climb your favorite apple tree
Try to catch the sun
Hide from your little brother’s gun
Dream yourself away
Why can’t we reach the sun
Why can’t we blow the years away
Blow away
Blow away
Remember
Remember”

(Remember a Day/Richard Wright/Album: A Saucer Full of Secrets circa 1968 Pink Floyd)
