Unless - Poem by Harley White


Muon neutrinos time of flight, (Einsteinian anomaly) ...
Particles that outpace light, upending relativity, (ahem) ...

Not so fast— lest we should be overawed,
Humans are human… some data are flawed.
Facts can turn fictional, rendered unsound.
Researchers research for findings unfound…

(Perchance) ...

We dance our physics dance and ponder—
On and on presumptions wander—
As we wonder here and yonder...

Might we travel time's trapeze,
Sail dimensions like a breeze,
Go before we came with ease?

Yet though unfathomed wisdom's sought,
How can we know beyond our thought?
Infinity eludes us— still,
Finiteness is a bitter pill.

We theorize to the skies,
Plumb the depths where insight lies—
But we see with earthly eyes,
And this cuts us down to size.

So we take our measurements
And scan the score.
Then what's proven true is true...
Unless there's more...
