“The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato.”
–Alfred North Whitehead

Today is an endless genesis.

A bit of cosmocinematic spellcasting inspired by Rudolf Steiner’s Interdisciplinary Astronomy Course

Today was June the tenth.

The year

two thousand and twenty two.


the Earth continued

weaving its way through space.

Through a space

twisted out of time

by lunar tides

and solar seasons.

A space

that did not pre-exist

our movement through it.

And we,

human beings

on earth

beneath the sky,

on land

before the ocean:

Did we notice?

Did we notice

the sky around us?

Did we notice

the light

being born

and dying


Did we notice

the leaves


and wilting

every year?

Did we notice

the oceans


and melting

through the eons?

A rhythm

runs through

all things.

We do not notice it

but it stirs us in our depths.

The world

really is

an ocean.


you cannot drowned

in it,


you are already breathing

under water.

The secret

to immortal life

is realizing

you have never left

and could never leave

the cosmic womb.

Even if

within that womb

is room enough

for endless genesis.
