Some Extensions on the Sovereignty of Science


The smallest muscle in the human body is in the ear.
It is also the only muscle that does not have blood vessels;

It has fluid instead. The reason for this is clear:
The ear is so sensitive that the body, if it heard its own pulse,

Would be devastated by the amplification of its own sound.   
In this knowledge I sense a great metaphor,

But I do not want to be hasty in trying to capture or describe it.   
Words are our weakest hold on the world.
