By John I. Blair

When we first slide into life
We find a vast continuum,
Overwhelming in variety
But seamless.

Then we conceive
A boundary around our self;
And once we contemplate the Other,
Nothing is the same.

As we analyze
Categories arise,
And the world begins
To crystallize.

We gain illusion of comprehension
But lose intimate connection
To a universe of possibility
And infinite dimension.

Without our categories
We have no science, no learning;
But with them come
Intolerance, war, loss of the Kingdom.

2003 John I. Blair
