Reality Dreams – A surreal Sixties book – The Preface.

p1140348

I used Pete’s incredible poem as the preface.

Preface

When I take all the time in the world

Me, you and it are all one –

Time agoes, roundabout whirls

Along distances never run.

 

If I think at the speed of light in my brain

And if my thoughts carry any weight

They’ll have infinite mass

And now and again

I’ll be able to speak with some gravity –

Which won’t be dependent on brevity

‘Cos infinites, infinite infinity.

And what about now? When? Now – then.

 

The monodimension

Mu-meson dilation

Of infinite extension,

Red shift relation,

That memory retention

Is fade out dependention –

One way ticket down entropies gangway.

 

When I take all the time in the world

And think it all into a second –

Has been and will be,

Old man and baby,

In coracle hairy

Of knowledge and mystery;

The facts and the fantasy

Of matter and energy

And Einstein’s light

All might

Be the same

But for name

 

In the rhyme

Of old tyme

……Dancing…….

When I take all the time in the world.

 

Pete Smith 1973
