Today no long posts. Just wanted to share a Rainer Maria Rilke poem. The string theory is more or less passe nowadays. But if you don’t want to get into full physical understanding of the string theory, the poem below can potentially help. It definitely helps me to feel strings, not necessarily to understand them.
At The Brink Of Night
My room and this distance, awake upon the darkening land, are one. I am a string stretched across deep surging resonance.
Things are violin bodies full of murmuring darkness, where women’s weeping dreams, where the rancor of whole generations stirs in its sleep . . . I should release my silver vibrations: then everything below me will live, and whatever strays into things will seek the light that falls without end from my dancing tone into the old abysses around which heaven swells through narrow imploring rifts.
