Science is the poetry of reality - Dawkins

How I'm rushing through this! How much each sentence in this
brief story contains. "The stars are made of the same atoms
as the earth." I usually pick one small topic like this to
give a lecture on. Poets say science takes away from the
beauty of the stars - mere globs of atoms. Nothing is "mere".
I too can see the stars on a desert night, and feel them.
But do I see less or more? The vastness of the heavens stretches
my imagination - stuck on this carousel my little eye can catch
one-million-year-old light. A vast pattern - of which I am a
part - perhaps my stuff was belched from some forgotten star,
as one is belching there. Or see them with the greater eye of
Palomar, rushing all apart from some common starting point
when they were perhaps all together. What is the pattern, or
the meaning, or the why? It does not do harm to the mystery
to know a little about it. For far more marvelous is the truth
than any artists of the past imagined! Why do the poets of the
present not speak of it? What men are poets who can speak of
Jupiter if he were like a man, but if he is an immense
spinning sphere of methane and ammonia must be silent?
 -- Richard P. Feynman, a footnote in "Six Easy Pieces"

Words of poet-naturalist René-Richard Castel: “A poet must not aim to teach and advance a science as much as to show its advantages and make it loved.”

I received this beautiful poem via e-mail. I don't know who wrote it.


White Dove

A place without a name, under a burnin' sky...
There's no milk and honey here, in the land of God.
Someone holds a sign, it says “We are human, too”...
and while the sun goes down... the world goes by !
White dove, fly with the wind...
Take our hope under your wings, for the world to know that ‘hope will not die’ where the children cry !
Waves big like a house... They're stranded on a piece of wood.
To leave it all behind... To start again...
but instead of a new life... all they find is a door that's closed,
and they keep lookin' for a place called ‘hope’ !
White dove fly with the wind...
Take our hope under your wings, for the world to know that ‘hope will not die’ where the children cry !
Can anyone tell me why the children of the world have to pay the price ?
And now you're telling me, you've seen it all before...
I know that's right... but still it breaks my heart !
Well, the golden lamb we've sent, makes us feel better now...
but you know it's just a drop in a sea of tears.
White dove fly with the wind...
Take our hope under your wings, for the world to know that ‘hope will not die where the children cry’ !

( A poem written by George Pena , a member of Art Lab, and the translation of it):

Te căutam…

 

Te căutam ca orbul pe lumină,

ca păsările setoase-un fir de apă                                                                                   

şi mi se-aprindeau imagini pe retină,

şi-nnebuneam etapă cu etapă.                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

Te căutam nesăţios în absenţa obscură

când se prăbuşeau în mine reverii,

şi simţeam cum creşte-n suflet o arsură

asemeni zorilor sângerii.

 

Te căutam prin atâta timp present,

frumoasă amăgire necesară,

căci fără tine pămânul mi-e absent

în colţişorul acesta de ţară.  

-------

I was looking for ...

I was looking for the blind to light,

Seto birds a water line

and I-lit images on the retina,

and-crazy step by step.

I was looking insatiable in the absence of dark

when sagging in my reveries,

and felt as a burning in my soul grow-

like dawn whorls.

I was looking through long present,

beautiful deception needed

Earth, because without you I'm missing

in this little corner of the country.

Poets with new and recent books borrow the mapping technique of “data fusion” from scientists.

The Geographic Information Systems defines “data fusion” as “organizing, merging and linking disparate information elements” to represent reality. Albert Goldbarth, Jordan Stempleman, Heid Erdrich, and Kevin Young create 21st-century literature by using multiple streams of information. In their works, science overlaps imagination, and perhaps this is the newest trend.
