The Improbability Of Being You - Poem by Robert Murray Smith
The probability of being you starts with
the Big Bang.
The begining of the universe was just under
14 billion years ago.
No Big Bang no you, you cannot disagree.
Now, no one can ever tell you in mathematical
certainty the probability leading to you.
If there was one atom missing in any sequence over
history from the Big Bang would you exist?
In all certainty, if one of your ancestors from the
begining of humans existing was missing there would be
We will skip to the Earth the date of your birth. To do
this we must forget the forming of our universe, and
the Earth. Also, the beginning of humans your ancestors.
The fusion of the female egg by a sperm resulted in
you being born. We have not computed the probability
of your parents' meeting.
Just that probability of your conception, and making
it to full term is astronomical, do you agree?
The sum total of what is stated above is that you are
so extraordinary unique.
When we look at your mind of chemical electrical neurons,
we find that no person ever had a mind like yours.
Are you now convinced how unique you are?
If you survive to old age you will have survived longer
than billions of humans.
Having worn out your body are you now satisfied that your
uniqueness has come to a proper end?
Die in peace you uniquely designed human.
