The Fundamental Desire

There was nothing to know or unknow

When there came that stirring

And the question arose

How come there is nothing to know or unknow?


Thus came about speculation

And the observer of that speculation.

And so the self was formed

Infused with the desire to know itself.


Out of this grew the universe,

The galaxies, stars and planets.

And to understand all that

Life itself came about.


But underlying these myriads of manifestations

Was always that ancient desire to know

A desire that didn’t want to know

That it was actually creating


All that it wanted to know…
