The brain is the inner surface of the world. A conduit for consciousness, it is where the world does its thinking. This is who we are the result of the evolution of DNA and its companion, messenger RNA through billions of chaotic years of terrestrial evolution and billions more in stars and dust.Fractal phenomena observed in the world of forms mirror the iteration of thought, feeling, and sensation alive in the minds of sentient beings.
Patterns, frequencies, pulse everywhere within the resonant ever-present network.Our urge to connect reflects an underlying unity. A universe is made of many minds, but one thing is clear: Mind, the experience of mind…is singular.
Even now, supercomputers of embedded thought are mining the many universes for vast resources of intelligence.

I know there is only one thing and never two things
not the world and not me but something else
something that is just one thing
that I can understand and know only for an instant
then it seems in the second half of that same instant
I forget what I know and there are two things again
I am lost
until it rains again
and then I remember
there is only
