Origami Heaven

Cloud 9 - Cartoons and poetry

What if?
 
What if the speed of light

is not a constant

after all?

 

What if Schrodinger's cat

has been dead

all along?

 

What if the Big Bang

has been creatio ex nihilo

from the start?

 

What if science is no more than

a game of join the dots

and all we are constructing

are imaginary constellations?

 

What if everything we think we know

should prove to be untrue

and we are no nearer understanding ourselves

than a thousand previous human generations?
