let them ring!

begin before zero was invented
what we see,hear,feel ,know,intuit-
more than sensory alphabets,almanacs
pre-us skills of indigenous now lost to us-
deep listening,empathic linking,telempathy
visual/verbal/aural soundscapes virgin to our auricles
Tools of our inherited/gifted bodies to begin
where we took it further than opposible thumbs-
cave,fire,spear,art,tribe-these persist/yet we
extend territoriality into heavens-space,moon,planets
study asteroids,meteors,make satellites,rockets,missiles
We were never tabula rasa-pre-thoughts still register as precognition
Certain elemental skills-divining,interpreting auguries/omens/signs as significant,
somewhere trace elements of ancient memories.Retrieve,rescue,renovate.
It is the remembering becomes re-learning.All mind is one.All time is now.
Intellectual enzymes and biological catalysts assist rebirth of wonder
Like opening closed coal mines-the territory may seem old
yet the results are new.New tools,new possibilities=new views.
