know thyself

Man is defined by its desire and limit;

it wants what it can't have

acquires what it can't keep

achieves what is forgotten.

 

Man is a mind

that enjoys and suffers consciousness

imprisoned in a body extended in Space

experiencing the duration of Time

through the succession of its ideas.

 

Man has Science;

and Science teaches Man

how to more effectively, efficiently

manipulate and exploit its world

Matter, Energy, Time and Space.

 

but Man is an animal, is like a plant;

Man's will is in chains

incarcerated by the predetermined

desires and limits of its design;

and try as Man will, it cannot create.
