One of the world's leading astro-physicists, over whelmed by the implications of the this new discovery, waxed rhapsodic in the following free verse:
Two spiral galaxies mate,
afloat as swirling mists of stars-
Turning slowly, tumbling upon one another in space
like curling spirals of blue-white smoke in a darkened room-!
They slowly turn
to engage one another
until they blend and merge
and a new gravity center
is created deep in their luminous core-!
Star incubators and nurseries
emerge on perturbatious waves:
the warp of space and the woof of time -
Nebulae expand, super-novas explode,
flare and light up boundless space
illuminating heavy dark-matter clouds of dust,
spewing forth the sparkling elements of life
and new verdant spinning worlds abound-!
As coiling filaments of
twisting ion currents
enmesh and structure space
directing enormous flows of energy,
matter, thought, light and life-
Out of seeming nothingness pops out
a living web of cosmic eternal Beingness-!
