Pathos conceals the ethos of life,
the Yang & Yin that make us us.
To subdue, to vanquish, to suppress the deceit within –
to substitute fraud without!
To search for feelings buried within –
for meaning, bliss without – the essence of our being.
Is life bereft a soul within – or is the soul a creation without?
Does thought and process shelter within – is thought within and process without?
Is brain and mind the same – is one your soul, the other your process?
Is sentience, consciousness – do we possess free will?
Are we guided by abstract, embedded algorithms or by the Hand of God?
Life science – social science? Religion – knowledge?
Alas, there is no inner voice – silence!
But I want to know.
