WikiPsalm Seventy


The misguided children of a lifetime spent

In the seclusion of their deeds

When will their atonement…

Plant their seeds?

Awaken them from slumber

Try to figure out their troubled past

Before a day of reckoning

Will reach out and seize them steadfast

Only when a soul can be brightened

A recollection of times in contrast

Will give them a needed perspective

For an idea to outlast

Sedition from Bondage


The key of captivity

Lies in the ability of the mind

Break the cycle of learned helplessness

Your freedom you will find

The fundamentals of illusion

Breed attachment and pain

When trapped in the problem

The solution we search for is in vain

Become the escape artist

Study the trap you are in

Visualize the possibilities

Become the Houdini and begin

The levels and degrees of servitude

We levy or subjugate

We mold our reality

Much of what we create

What is the sound of one hand clapping?

Teacher enticing student to see

Constructs in our minds

Can also be just folly

The statement below is false

The statement above is true

A liars paradox

Another Waterloo

The duck or the rabbit?

Wittgenstein would ask

Which will give way?

Which one will last?

The Zen koan, the Greek paradox, and Wittgenstein

All demonstrate a vantage point to see

Problems of human reasoning

All contingent on how we will be

We Cling to the Edict that Survives


I look for inspiration

If I let myself down

If I learn from others how to better myself

I won’t become the clown

Something is deeply etched upon me

And is realized inside my brain

A superego that takes this reckoning

It must escape the bane

I’m not sayin’ what works for me

Will also work for you

I’m only sayin’ that somehow for me

This seems for me to be true

We make inferences and we question

We experiment in our lives

We become philosophers and scientists

We cling to the edict that survives
