I Am: "I Think Therefore I Am"

Updated on February 10, 2013

“I Think Therefore I Am”


I borrow this statement of Rene Decarte for the title of this hub. This hub is actually a poem I created springing out from the bottomless vacuum of human existence.

The title of this poem is “I Know You” and here it goes;


“I Know You”


You authentically exist, I acknowledge you; in fact you had been long in existence eons before I come out to this physical world;

The wind carry you swiftly with a lightning speed from nowhere through all the four dimensions of the Universe and the four corners of this globe;

You were there very long before the Great Wall of China had been conceptualized by those who came to and went off in the land of the living;

You watched the advent of civilization and how it flourished in the Niles as it advanced towards the so-called New Age of human existence;

You are lulled to sleep by the melody of angels singing their praises of love and beauty to the “Alpha and Omega”, the Almighty no-beginning and no-ending HIM;

In the Land of Nowhere where the Universe dance and sing with the myriads of bejeweled stars and the whole of the planetary family, you are there too, celebrating festively;

You swim and wade in the infinitely wide and deep blue oceans of the endless depths somewhere, yes somewhere;

The seven times heat of Nebuchadnezzar’s oven is nothing compared to your billions and trillions and even measureless voltage;

You are Omniscience, everywhere and anywhere, every-time and anytime, somewhere and someway, and anyhow and anyway;

You are clad with the infinitely colored brilliant beauty and the glaring gleam of once upon a time Lucifer’s priceless gems;

Your Being You is beyond telling by any fallible human like me but I know you.

In all of your wanderings and adventures with the brightness and brilliance of everything sprouted and created and with the timelessness of your perfectly aesthetic existence, one day you came to a halt, an impossibly abrupt halt;

You were suddenly tasked for a mission to accomplish in order to prove the authentic relevance and purpose of your existence;

The Order came to you as a complex mixture of complete and lingering darkness, a thunderous and boisterous sound of the unknown and the nowhere, a lightning speed and glare from a throne beyond the blue;

You are trapped!

You stumbled to the abyss of no escape;

Escapade is only possible when the mission is accomplished with flying colors of honor and glory;

Or you can hate your situation enough to abort the mission in your own volition;

No rewards for such choice, only punishments; for forever you will be disdainfully ugly and be eternally exiled to the infamous cell of eternal imprisonment and damnation for the King of Tarsus, the once upon time Lucifer, whose choice was to reign in the throne of endless discomfort, to say the least;

Countless of the inhabitants there were like you and they made their choice to go against the Will, against the Order;

You are vacuumed in confusion;

You want to scream but to whom?

You want to move but how?

This is a totally different ground you are in;

Your power is limited in this vacuum;

You needed to be connected to the Land of Nowhere where you had been;

You are trapped inside the Crown of Creation, Me!

A lot of those like me do not acknowledge the likes of you in them; and it bothers me a lot;

I want to reach out to them and tell them to take heed to the one who dwells in them;

How can I be understood?

But you must be persistent inside me;

Your scream within me is so loud, you won’t let me sleep unless…unless, I recognize you and listen to you;

I listen to you and I had been listening since I acknowledge your authentic existence in me;

I know you because you are Me.

      Hi xstatic ,

      Thank you for reading. Yes that was a good and rare conversation I have in HubPages and also the first invitation to meet in person; this prospect of meeting someone from HubPages is really interesting.

      Good for your wife; everybody can choose what to believe in; the fact that she believes on something is by itself rewarding as opposed to not believing anything.

      Really interesting poem and fascinating exchange of comments here too. I hope the proposed meeting takes place and results in a couple of hubs!

      My wife is a "New Thought" believer, that is one who believes that God is in everything and in all of us (as I understand it anyway).

      Very nice read. Poor old Rene' died due to a Queen requiring him to arise early in the very cold castle, he caught sick, and that was that. Just to add to the fun trivia.

      Globe,

      I think I can see what you mean. I can relate to the universal nature of the emotional human, yet I would still think in the individual and cultural differences in expressing these emotions. There is also the variations in the degree and intensity of expressing emotions or the reaction to the same given stimulus. I am just speaking here based on my academic and theoretical experiences but not in terms of actual experiences global-wise.

      I am not so interested in the " modern world". I am more interested in the variety of cultures that you see which unfortunately are becoming more extinct faster than we would like it to be.what I find interesting is the similarity in sentiments and emotions in most cultures regardless of what the issues are. The issues and circumstances that illicit these sentiments and emotions may not be the same -like carnage in Africa or in asia, or depression and mental illness caused by the drug driven lifestyle in the western world (living in the fast lane, so to speak) but the by -product result is the same- sad,depressed lonely and isolated.

      Globe,

      If I may ask, what is it in all your travels that you find interesting if not exciting? If it's not the people and the variations and complex differences of what people do due to cultural differences then there must something else?

      One thing i can share with you, is that people are basically the same all over the world.It really does not matter what kind of skin color you have or physique you have , the very basic core of all cultures are the same , at least that 's what I have observed over the years of travelling. We all hurt, we all cry, we feel pain both internal and external - the sentiments are similar be it that you are huto in africa or a trendy cosmopolite in Paris and Los Angeles .Big metropolitan cities are very similar too and they don't fascinate me .You see one and you've seen them all.

      Gosh Globe, and you ask why I am curious about you? Just the user name Globetrekker incites curiosity to me, how much more when you live that name. Yes, am curious about the world too but never have the opportunity to travel like what you do. I will have a lot of questions concerning the people and culture in those places you had been to...not to mention what kind of personality you are that you do what you do...

      girl, you are making me pink in the face ! LOL! why are you curious? Just curious. He he he ! , lol somebody in hubpages is curious about me? THAT'S A FIRST.... Believe me, nothing to be curious about me. he he he . But that will be great if we can meet in Manila. My travel itinerary is on the planning stage yet but I plan to do a southeast asian tour when I come there.laos,vietnam and cambodia maybe even Myanmar (used to be Burma).I usually catch my connecting flight in manila from Laoag and I usually have a few hours downtime before my connecting flight . if we can meet then, I will look forward to it.

      Globe,

      It's okay if you will fool me as long as I am not the one who fool others. Being street smart is a curiosity to me, am curious about you actually.

      Wow Globe,

      Really? Yes that would be exciting. We can meet at dinner. I had never met anyone I know from the net except my husband. I am actually speechless; an intellectual female friend from hubpages to meet in person; that would be wonderful.

      Jynz, Just a little trivia and don't mean to intrude but " I Think ,Therefore I am " is not Plato's philosophical line.The phrase was coined by Rene Descartes- a well known 17th century French philosopher.The phrase was originally in Latin-COGITO ERGO SUM, translated into French =Je pense, donc Je suis. This philosophical line was found in part IV of Discourse on the Method (1637 – written in French but with inclusion of "Cogito ergo sum").Just my 2 cents in,:-)

      Nice discourse ,very cranial poem we can all relate to :-)
