VII. Small Infinities

 

The average universe
Is remarkably small
And fits easily enough
Along with all the others
Inside this one.
Even among the little ones,
There’s an enormous range
In terms of both size and complexity.
Findings demonstrate, that is,
A substantially unequal distribution
Of wealth in this regard,
As in all other regards.
Hierarchy is real.
But the system itself
Is dynamic: present reality
Can make no special claim
With regard to potential reality.
Thus the origin of tragedy.
People think, for instance,
The stone does not know
And cannot learn,
And the stone
Likewise vice versa.

 

Jeffrey Schultz’s artist statement:

Title of series: Fifteen Variations on Themes from Levis.
In a series of fifteen brief variations, Schultz will meditate on a number of themes–some of them poorly recalled from memory, some of them badly obscured or poorly understood–from Levis’s work.
