“The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein: 'Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus' 5.6.


in the quantum world
(it is said by some)
past – present – future
is a diffuse cloud
of psychologically produced
bewitching the mind

in the metaphysical world
(it is said by some)
you – me – it
is a fuzzy jumble
of intuitively justified
a priori judgments
misleading the senses

in the philosophical world
(it is said by some)
Idealism – rationalism – empiricism
all evolved
from Platonic footsteps
even his parentheses bring light into the cave
and continue the dialectical tradition
