Dali's Stopwatch: A Hearing (1)


who comes by this way
whether it be from fields of history
law medicine philosophy or physics
must renounce all understanding of self
and embark upon the voyage

returning to chaos and beginning
wherein there is no end, to nihilism
wherein is only possibility,
wherein space-time future past
melt away in all consuming now.

eternal fire within burns this argument.

we, the weavers of dreams
on the horizon of future of Man,
beyond time, the monolith reveal
here, inter-dimensional hemisphere
beyond borders of dragon's mask

spiral of evolution to unfold.


ref: Salvador Dali (1904 - 1989) : The Persistence of Memory (1931)

    Nicely captured Dali's monumental art in a beautiful poem. Please read my poem 'Dali Painting' when you have time. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    A nihilistic philosophy too deep to be understood! ! All our notions of self and time are obliterated into a new understanding and our concept of the past and present will be eclipsed by the present or now as the spiral of evolution unfolds! I know only one thing, this poem gives a spiralling twist to my brain! ! (Report) Reply

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
