    Actually, all the knowledge is deep inside but we search it outside due to our limited individual nature. Seen from its own sake, all the knowledge of this world has a meaning but our individual taste will decide which kind of knowledge is to be naturally absorbed. So, in a sense, the rest of all knowledge which fall outside the perimeter of our natural taste will be viewed as something unnatural, as something of a kind of waste and burden but since human nature is very wast, we can always find an Einstein, Newton, people like Marx, poets like you, writers like Twain, artists like Ravi Varma and so on. Hence, you need not bother on the subject on which you are presently dwelling. Within the stream of diversity, umpteen planes of human thoughts are possible. That means, Marx will be born again and again and if you cannot absorb him, leave him alone. That is the only solution. Christ will be born again and again and if you cannot absorb him, move away from him. That is the only solution. We can't destroy human nature and the volume of knowledge as such. We can only reform ourselves. We can only be selective from individual point of view. (Report)Reply

    Your language invaded the universal problematic.... Give full marks for your Satire on Marx....epitomising him in a dialectical framework of loqua abundance
    The making-use of the surplus of meaning and the lack of a center in order to validate new frontiers of meaning....
    A formidable task.. to club three intellectual giants of modern times.

    This is absolutely modern in the choice of diction...
    Structure, sign and play..... not a title, this is what I want to tell about your poem.Perfection is reached and unreached.
    Things spoken and unspoken
    Logocentrism of your poem is wonderful....

    Sorry readers. Due to severe web troubles, the 3rd sentence of my comment got distorted, it should read as:

    'It is at the same time a reflection of the simultaneous human tendency both for fusion and disintegration.'

    Incovenience caused is regretted.

    I think this is one of the best experimentations in modern poetry in recent times. The broken lines, incomplete sentences, vagueness of often contradictory scholastic theories - all constitute to make the poem a true replica of modern intellectual mind. It is also at the same time the human tendency for fusion and disintegration at the same time. I am not certain, the exact ideas the poetess had in mind while writing this but nevertheless as a very ordinary reader I think the poem has put me before the fractured personality of mankind as it is today.

    Framing and filling with thoughts in unconventional way…

    Well in poetry vast esplanade remaining uncultivated to its full extent …

    Poetry can be research oriented blended with poetic emotion…so far I know such experiments are done in less number…here the poet has done that…

    Sizzlers with dash of both punch of knowledge…satire and poetic emotion…a sojourn…

    Indeed theories come and go…but …time wasted…where one can’t get and grab the right one…like fashion theories changes…like change of color of chameleon… all are not highly cerebrate so they become prey of such chameleon theories…

    action learns to unlearn in opposite direction
    passion is what today just dispassionate tomorrow by time
    materialism by thesis and antithesis is dialectical dysfunction
    as when nihilism avows the surrealistic realism.........................fantastic exposition of scholastic views by deep erudition, i do enjoy the style and diction,10++, thanks for sharing

    Excellent poetic form and erudite poem! Well done! Nicely penned undoubtedly.

    Like the proverbial elephant and the blind men each claiming, no it's only ear or trunk etc. whereas the reality was an Elephant, so also Newton, neurotic..takes too much responsibility for vast knowledge works on the absolute, Einstein on the Relative which is really relevant only at the speed of light, Marx to fit in his materialism in thesis and antithesis derived from Hegel's dialectics, and Derrida-searching contradictions in texts
    do not say the whole TRUTH.Thanks dear for such marvelous expression!

    So it is all Bunkum..maze of confusion..pseudo learn...Paradigm shift, U-Turn...Quasi-Queasy...and the human Wanders I what should I do or accept?

    The reason and mind has Limitations, we need to go beyond that, of course, on our way softly, touching all 'ism, religions, and scientific thoughts but not allowing them to have a sway over us.Thanks.
    Voted 10+

    Interesting two scientists and two philosophers …all of repute…

    Ways of learning are many … today’s flab facts are tomorrow’s tarter trash …and through it we’ve to pass …

    Learning is construction deconstruction [poet mentioned] no one can say final or whistle final...never possible…and poet wisely dissected both wise and pundit’s views…

    Toast of [? ] satire on Newton-Einstein-Marx-Derrida really enjoying

    Experiment makes and propels towards perfection…and we’ve this poet always edging to experimenting on poetry in myriad canvas and format e.g. Fusion Poetry [Ich bin ein Künstler] also writing in polyglot format…

    This poetry as commented by others done as contemplative one where she distillated many new things/thoughts of learning under one canopy…in glimpse [as here details will make the corpus heavy …in prose it is possible]

    Indeed theories are flooding and: ‘Burn in Learn/It’s my culmination! As conclusion…I than poet
