Leitmotif

Reason as the Leading Motive

Ex nihilo

Posted by Jerry on June 29, 2004

In a moment’s instance then
Which could have been 100 billion years in the past
Which could have been 100 billion years in the future
Antithesis reversed
Battled, wrestled,
Ripped and spewed
From its bosom charring inferno

And in an explosive cry
Of defeat
And despair
And of destitution
It succumbed to the void of existence
To the fatigue of eternity.

Then nothing was created
And nothing gave birth.
And today
Because of nothing
you and I are here.

    i am confused–i agree and i disagree with “because of nothing you and i are here” am i just supposed to take your word for it? i think the becuse is to ambiguous in this! because of nothing? you wouldnever have an idea of nothing without the something existing in the first place…i mean, everything is caused by something else-there is never any baby without sex, there is never any flower without sun…originally there was “nothing” in some sense, no baby and no flower, but there is always was a some – thing which caused the thing from nothing…a sun to initiate light and a man to initiate, well, anyways you get the point…
