let them ring!

progress in process/process in progress

ideas elemental evolve and adapt
to circumstances like suits of clothes we wear out
until their colors are no longer fashionable
and angels dancing on the heads of pins
or trees falling in a foreign forest
become poetic metaphors and analogies
rather than theories and hypotheses
you can build your house upon
Even the foundations are suspect-
time and space do more than curve
they change according to where you are right now
Gravity inverts in space,black holes are reversible
and every visual clue as to atomic theory is cartoon
Evidence accrues and negates every building block
Demolition orders are out upon the lot!
