Read this as a poorly executed rap/slam.

TAKE 1

Descartes’ famous and cheeky declaration

become the reason

The rationalization

The substantiation

that it’s permissible

even the calling card

of the freakishly intelligent

the class with the upper hand

Subjugating

sacrificing

our sacred living experience

our heart-mind

To our puny little addicted brains

And now* every body who has

a different way of knowing

And every thing that is not human

is of less value than our

Burning Bloated Brains.

Rene should have stuck with mathematics. He was good at that.

Mathematics…yeah, that’s the right career for Rene.

TAKE 2:

No more.

Thinking loses hands down

to experience.

It all belongs.

It all has worth.

It is all ‘am’.

It is all ‘am’.

*The Age of Enlightenment was officially kicked off by Rene Descartes with Discourse on the Method Thankfully, we began slamming into the other end point for this aberration (so called enlightenment!) when we figured out that reduction is not the only or even the best way to understand how things are.
