‘Turtles All the Way Down’ By James Ph. Kotsybar The Society July 31, 2013 Beauty, Poetry They operate contrary to the rules of common sense that we hold dear as proof that what we know is right, that we’re no fools and senses we possess perceive the truth. They ramble through eleven dimensions. Their motions, seemingly governed by chance, confuse and amend our comprehensions – on heads of pins, probabilities dance. The turtles supporting the world we ride have gotten quantumly stranger today — so small their extra dimensions can hide beneath the larger turtles in the way. Atop this turtle-tower, we still sit, and, teetering, try to make sense of it. James Ph. Kotsybar owns Chaotic Exotics orchid nursery.
