A tanka written by Lee Sonogan
There will be no end to the troubles of states, or of humanity itself, till philosophers become kings in this world, or till those we now call kings and rulers really and truly become philosophers, and political power and philosophy thus come into the same hands. – Plato
Gut-foundered forsake your leave,
Register close gibe,
Old sigh of relief ho heave,
Until doomsday circumscribe.
General relativity predicts that time ends inside black holes because the gravitational collapse squeezes matter to infinite density. – Lee Smolin
