The Origins Of Intelligence - Poem by John Vogel

The origins of intelligence
By, Word.Smyth

In the beginning was logos, meaning beyond definition
pure intention from a source unlike any human invention
beyond time and the minds ability to grasp the situation
beyond anything we can think, the original manifestation
manifesting intelligence by devising flickers of photons
illusionary individuality, tiny minds tricked for so long
for a time buying into lies of mortality and separation
devising clever equations to explain the universes creation
yet evading the question of why we feel the need to explain
to define something beyond what we perceive with our brains

seeking in vain ignoring the origin of our investigation
the reason why.. seek to find answers for life's insinuations
the answer lies in the timeless fabric, the mind of the 'God'
Therein lies the reason why try to redefine lies we been taught
Time to open eyes closed and blind for too long, set it straight
fate lies in our own creative mind for we are not really separate
we are not apart from the creative logos that expresses intelligence
in the end, this nonsense we call self redefined as less then relevant
it's all a divisive lie, the truth some can't accept, call it fallacy
but intelligence begins and ends within the mind creating this reality.
