The Ultimate Result Of Evolution - Poem by George Pararas-Carayannis

In the temporal domain of experience,
I reside fully submerged,
Seeking consciousness and knowledge,
The full sensual impact to my physical body.
Grasping the multiplicity of time,
In the reality of temporal experience,
I try to justify my human entity
By reconciling the conscious with the unconscious,
The real with the altered, the true with the imaginary.
And thus, I exercise the power of my species,
My personal identity of shelf through life,
Defining and redefining my human existence, by reaching,
As no other species can, across my past and future.
In my ability to recall the past,
I imagine the consequences of future actions.
By being aware simultaneously of past and future,
While submerged in the domain of present experience,
I form the judgments that guided me,
Starting afresh and reassuring my dominance and continuity on this planet.
I am the ultimate result of evolution.
