Archeon horizon

At first sunrise

Out of pristine [?]

I am "modus perfectum" [?]

Somewhere they're

Lost, sleeping [?]

"After sleeping through a hundred million centuries we have finally opened our eyes on a sumptuous planet, sparkling with color, bountiful with life. Within decades we must close our eyes again. Isn't it a noble, an enlightened way of spending our brief time in the sun, to work at understanding the universe and how we have come to wake up in it?"

The cosmic law of gravity

Pulled the newborns around a fire

A callous (careless?) cold infinity

In every vast direction

Lonely farer (Lone wayfarer/Lonely pharaoh?) in the Goldilocks zone

She has a tale to tell

From the stellar nursery into a carbon feast

Enter LUCA

The tapestry of chemistry

There is a writing in the garden

Leading us to the mother of all

We are one

We are a universe

Forebears of what will be scions of the Devonian sea

Eons pass writing the tale of us all

The day-to-day new opening

For the greatest show on Earth

Iron (ion?) shadows

Welcoming the outside world to the stuff of stars [?]

Bearing the tree of a biological holy

Enter life

The tapestry of chemistry

There is a writing in the garden

Leading us to the mother of all

We are one

We are a universe

Forebears of what will be scions of the Devonian sea

Eons pass writing the tale of us all

The day-to-day new opening

For the greatest show on Earth

We are here to care for the garden

The wonder of, birth of, every form most beautiful

Every form most beautiful

We are one

We are a universe

Forebears in what will be scions of the Devonian sea

Eons pass writing the tale of us all

The day-to-day new opening

For the greatest show on Earth

After a billion years

The show is still here

Not a single one of your faunas died young

The handy travelers out of Africa

Little Lucy on the Afar

Gave birth to fantasy

To idolatry

To self-destructive weaponry/waggery/venery [?]

Enter the ... [?]

Deep within the past

Atavistic trail of the hunter

Enter Ionia

The cradle of thought

The architecture of understanding

The human lust to feel so exceptional

To rule the Earth

Hunting for shiny rocks

For giant mushroom clouds

The will to do what should be done, but

Enter history

The grand finale

Enter ... [?]

Man, he took his time in the sun

Had a dream to understand

The single grain of sand

He gave birth to poetry

But one day'll cease to be

Greet the last light of the memory

Man, he took his time in the sun

Had a dream to understand

The single grain of sand

He gave birth to poetry

But one day'll cease to be

Greet the last light of the memory

Man, he took his time in the sun

Had a dream to understand

The single grain of sand

He gave birth to poetry

But one day'll cease to be

Greet the last light of the memory

We were here

We were here

We were here

We were here

"We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born. The potential people who could have been here in my place but who will in fact never see the light of day outnumber the sand grains of Sahara. Certainly those unborn ghosts include greater poets than Keats, scientists greater than Newton. We know this because the set of possible people allowed by our DNA so massively exceeds the set of actual people. In the teeth of those stupefying odds it is you and I, in our ordinariness, that are here. We privileged few, who won the lottery of birth against all odds, how dare we whine at our inevitable return to that prior state from which the vast majority have never stirred?"

"There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved."
