Patti Masterman


Asymmetry


The water flows all around me
As I try to bend, flow along with its currents;
But it always subtly changes on me
So that I find myself in gentle opposition,
In one direction or another.

In life, no matter how hard we try
We are in conflict with others;
With nature, weather, time, distance..

Our life lies in those tiny differences
The manifold that's living
Lies in the degree of separation,
For asymmetry is the god of the new physics.

    'asymmetry is the god of the new physics.' It's funny, but a Patti Masterman in an alternate universe said exactly the opposite! -chuck (Report) Reply
