First Prize In Literature [rev.] - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

The post-modern Electric Universe model reveals
that factual cosmology inspired ancient art, myths,
religion and poetry and leaves outdated modern
theories of quantum mechanics & physics with all
accompanying mysteries - affording opportunities
for poetic license – facetiously describing mental
phenomena like forgetfulness as black holes - far
behind, now it’s old-fashioned to think of

99% of the universe as invisible black matter, Terry
Pratchett created the spoof that visible phenomena
required 9-tenths administration which was carried
out by the invisible Auditors; paradigms of science
have a short life until, as Kuhn said, a better-fitting
theory comes along, thus the only lasting aspect of
science is the poetry and narratives to which it gave
rise: faced with the Theory of the Electric Universe

Which explains ancient rock art depicts electrical
discharge formations in the skies of a cosmos in
turmoil when planets caused upheavals on earth;
the inherent logic of electrical plasma rules out the
need for the dramatic posture of black energy that
kept galaxies from flying apart; the explanation of
electrical discharge formations seen in ancient rock
art is less poetic & more basic - Occam’s razor

Indicates it has a better chance to be true; the
ancient myths and legends woven about the
electrical events disturbing earth can already
boast first prize in literature and poetry…
