Spinning someplace in the blackness of space
A peculiar world hosts an unhuman race
Rethink reality, abandon earthly notions
Here, cerulean seas;
There, prismatic oceans
Macro quantum motion
Instantaneous locomotion
No need for roads
Teleport to go
No streetlight, no lamppost
The trees, you see, they glow
"Action rules the day" -
That's what we say
Yet far away
They've found a better way
Telepathic speech
Telekinetic reach
Lovely thoughts no less essential
Than the air they breathe
Nothing remains the same there
'Tis a world in constant flux
No looping patterns
Newness always interrupts
No doctors can be found
Hospitals not around
Sickness doesn't exist
Dis-ease relegated to myth
Millions o' years in antiquity past
An epic discovery was cast
A cure unveiled, a panacea revealed
Reverberating across the cosmic field
On every world
In each dimension
Lurks this secret
Of terrestrial ascension
Uncovered by few, coveted by all
Grasp it to rise
Miss it and fall
Mind over matter?
Mind is the only matter
All else - secondary factors
Perplexed is UnEarth that we earthlings
Have yet to understand one thing -
"Mind is King"
