Search, search for the hint
of the existence of something
bizarre o human beyond the
borderline of the oceanic blue
body you were born on and
above the horizon where
the dust of stars rambles
wildly in space.
search whether the existence
of a species like you is fated
to live in isolation,
holding the broken chords of truth your
ancestors handed over to you,
giving you an iota of hope
that something extraterrestrial is out there.
Search before the universe expands
and stars which guided you to look
above the dome which captures your curiosity
fades billions of light-years away
leaving you with an empty black canvas.
Do you believe in the existence of something extraordinary out there?
Yesterday, I was reading that in the 16th century, the Italian monk Giordano Bruno proposed that the stars were other suns, each of which could have its own solar systems. Life could even populate these other earths. Believing that the universe was infinite, Bruno also insisted that it could have no center. Bruno was tried by the Roman inquisition for these and other heretical beliefs and burnt at the stake in 1600.
Well, I'm glad that at least we are living in a time where it's okay to hold such beliefs! 👽
