scito se

Modes of inquiry may seem Socratic
Faith resides in random data
religions exist with/out evidence
persist by faith alone/lists of unanswered
fill philosophies/theologies/mythologies
Aristotle and the Stoics persist in suffering
Modernists Dawkins/Hitchens still seek Enlightenment values
Thomas Hobbes calls our lives"nasty,brutish,short"
Immanuel Kant Critiques Pure Reason as fallible
Tolstoy,Conrad,Proust,Hardy cede Fate over Will
Nietzsche posits Will as Superman(Hitler/Wagner)
Marcus Aurelius Meditates on Self as Cosmos
Sabrina Spielrein saw World as Will and Idea
Underneath Rational,Eros and Thanatos Battle
Underneath Freud and Jung ,we persist
rejecting responsibility for our human condition
making Chaos a Theory,seeking Harmonic Convergence
It is less our image than who we really are
that makes two Great Wars and endless little arguments
