    He is Afraid but Tries

    He is Afraid but Tries

    James F. Newell

    In E-space*
    It is memes which are real,
    Evolving by self-belief
    And a tacit dictionary
    Of meaning-forms,
    Which in humans
    Are mere thoughts.

    Kaleidoscopic E-space,
    Cluster of meaning dimensions,
    One route through hyperspace
    That few dare take,
    Where even a monitor trained
    Like Harry
    Can suddenly find himself
    With white fur and tail
    Or in a landscape
    Of slippery banana peels.

    It's easy for memes
    To dance between beautiful and ugly,
    To step between wise and foolish.

    How humans hesitate
    Between flowing memes
    And the stiffness of dogmatic stone,
    Unsure of reasons
    To laser point their choice
    And what that choice
    Will bring.

    One thing we know;
    A stone will never go
    Where no stone
    Has ever gone before,
    Will never see
    The most wonderful thing
    The universe can show.

    *David Brin, HEAVEN'S REACH, 1999, New York:Bantum Books
