Transcending Existence (Dedicated To Dr Miguel Nicolelis) - #brainsci

Rating: 5.0
Soul and will are now under the question
The question questions the consciousness
The consciousness, that resides in limitedness
Seeks the transcending existence in the cloud
Here comes a man with monkey's brain
And now the machine thinks like the monkey
If that machine turns to man, no wonder
Simple to complex is the brain
And now complex turns to confusion in the machine
'Where are the soul and the will? ' I cried
'Merely stimulated Neuro-chemicals in the neurons?
No…no…no…why to try sudden end? '
Yesterday monkey turns to machine
Today no report further
Tomorrow where am I? In the cloud?
'Define me now
Who am I?
Am I merely CNS cum PNS? '
I repeated the questions day and night
'Where are religion, salvation and God?
What is my existence if there is death? ' I asked.
These questions broke the silence of my heart
And echoed in the disturbance
'Who sees what I see and thinks over my thoughts?
If I am mere energy and impulse,
To what my transformation does extend? '
I found no one with an answer or to stop thinking except death
'Can death stop me from what I am and ought to be? '
The thinking thing continues thinking
Until when the transcendental existence of my being becomes fulfilled.
