Daily Micro: Yesterday’s Visionaries in Today’s World ~ Sir Isaac Newton

In Yesterday’s Visionaries in Today’s World, Stephen J. Bergstrom gives creative voice to visionary souls in process of awakening.

Through imaginative device, Yesterday’s Visionaries in Today’s World reveals two contrasting visions that shape contemporary existence.

In one, conquerors traverse the world as a series of endless privileges secured through material means and patriarchal oppression.

In the other, conquered and oppressed individuals and groups perceive that consciousness animates nature, humanity and the spirit of a Living Earth.

Acknowledging Sir Isaac Newton

Earth, water, air and fire, the divine elements, surely from elsewhere.

After Principia, I wanted to know more. Had I birthed a rationale so steady, so cocksure that the heavens trembled? Or did the alchemists, with their symbols and machinations, their cries to an unknown earthly power, redouble my most vain understanding?

Was there something beyond knowing? Was Thales correct when he perceived that magnets had souls, that all things are full of gods, that everything is made of water, that living things produce movement in themselves or through observation of others?

Was I mad?

Is the Earth alive? Is the Earth a living being? Did her tears become the waters of the world?

Is Principia, the height of my reputation, also my refutation?

I stalk the ethers, troubled in thought, my mind unsure and I see spirits and feel kindness and sympathy towards me.
