No thanks Galileo

No thanks Galileo

Galileo:
here’s my new instrument, a telescope,
look for yourself:
the moons go round Jupiter
as the earth goes round the sun.

Inquisition:
no thanks.

Post-rationalist:
here’s meditation, inner contemplation,
and an extraordinary new mix now available
of eastern tradition and western psychological insight;
if you apply yourself to it
in a disciplined way for some time
the clarity of your perspectives will increase
and that which is hidden behind all,
that some call emptiness,
and some call God,
and some call Buddha nature
may be glimpsed:
try it for yourself.

Rationalist:
no thanks
