Swimming in the Milky Way


My mystical quantum poem

SWIMMING IN THE MILKY WAY


You and I are tiny creatures in the universe
Living on a blue planet Mother Earth
A part of the spiral galaxy extremely huge
We call it metaphorically the Milky Way though

Let us imagine together
The great Milky Way below and above
Is a huge swimming pool in the universe
150.000 light years is its diameter

Have you found previously such a huge swimming pool
Anywhere on your one blue and charming planet?
Hung on the cosmic void is the magical swimming pool
Not water but billions of stars contained in it

Each star having planets encircling on their orbits
In toto there are about 11 million Earth-like planets
In one galaxy alone in the vastness of the universe
So far as we now can scientifically estimate

Let us together imagine freely
In such a huge swimming pool called the Milky Way
We together are swimming cheerfully and happily
Our happy voices sound like magical cosmic music gorgeously

We are dancing in the deep water of the galaxy
Our bodies are vibrating like the strings of beautiful harps
Strummed brilliantly by professional cosmic musicians
The waves of the musical sounds of our bodies ripple continually

The quantum energy of the waves is extremely strong
Reaching the edges and the peaks of the universe still expanding
Which was born 13,8 billion years ago out of nothing
Through the quantum event we call the Big Bang

While dancing in the deep water of the Milky Way
We are feeling nothing about suffering and unhappiness
We are being set free via the union with the galaxy
Immersing into the ocean of the transcendence liberates us

The cosmic power of the vast galaxy is within you
You are one with the galaxy, and the galaxy with you
Instead of feeling that you are a little and powerless being
Feel and think, you are a great and powerful earthling

Swim, swim, swim, together, in the vast water of the galaxy
At the center of the water of the Milky Way is the black hole
It holds immense energy we call the Planck Energy
Swim deep, deep, deep, until you enter it alone

Don’t worry about the name “black hole” so much indeed
Inside the hole there is the light entrapped by its strong pull
Though it powerfully pulls and eats anything around
Light, particles and energy can still radiate, opposing its pull

Stephen Hawking is the first scientist
Who has pointed out this radiation of the black hole
After his name we give the name “Hawking Radiation” to it
If you now are being entrapped in it, it again will set you free

Swim, swim, swim, deep, within the black hole of the Milky Way
The power of the hole will send you into other parallel universes
Your other selves await you there impatiently
Or else, there you will meet friendly intelligent aliens

In the middle of the vast water of the Milky Way
You and I will establish the intergalactic human civilization
It’s easy, easy, easy, to imagine if you try
To see you and I to be part of it, is the Mother Earth’s intention

With our bodies being naked entirely
Swim, swim, swim, in the water of the Milky Way
You and I will suck much healthy milk from her great breast
Imagine, we are the human babies yearning for our great mother’s nipples

In union with the Milky Way galaxy
While swimming in the milky water of the galaxy
We are entering the world of the transcendence
We are establishing the human intergalactic civilization

Let us imagine together
The great Milky Way below and above
Is a huge swimming pool in the universe
150.000 light years is its diameter

It’s easy if you try to imagine
So, why not try, try and try?
Swim, swim, swim, together, to unite
With our whole bodies each being naked completely

Dance, dance, dance, sing, sing, sing, loudly and powerfully
Until our voices and the vibration of the strings of our bodies
Reach the edges and the peaks of our universe finally
If only it had edges and peaks

To imagine, it’s easy if you try
So, why not try, try and try?
Swim, swim, swim, together, energetically
With our bodies each being naked completely

The transcendence is wholly naked
No garments called religions
No shoes called dogmas
No head called creed

The transcendence is the galactic swimming pool
Can be felt only by deep, deep, deep, swimming in it
With the bodies being naked full
Wearing only loving kindness as the holy garment
