    I. Four Point Six

    Archaean horizon
    The first sunrise
    On a pristine Gaea
    Opus perfectum
    Somewhere there, us sleeping

    "After sleeping through a hundred million centuries
    we have finally opened our eyes
    on a sumptuous planet,
    sparkling with color, bountiful with life.
    Within decades we must
    close our eyes again.
    Isn't it a noble, an enlightened way of spending
    our brief time in the sun,
    to work at understanding the universe
    and how we have come to wake up in it?"
    Professor Richard Dawkins

    Ii. Life

    The cosmic law of gravity
    Pulled the newborns around a fire
    A careless, cold infinity in every vast direction
    Lonely farer in the Goldilocks zone
    She has a tale to tell
    From the stellar nursery into a carbon feast
    Enter Luca

    The tapestry of chemistry
    There's a writing in the garden
    Leading us to the Mother of all

    We are one
    We are a universe
    Forbears of what will be
    Scions of the Devonian sea
    Aeons pass
    Writing the tale of us all
    A day-to-day new opening
    For the greatest show on Earth

    Ion channels welcoming the outside world
    To the stuff of stars
    Bedding the tree of a biological holy
    Enter life

    We are here to care for the garden
    The wonder of birth
    Of every form most beautiful


    Iii. The Toolmaker

    After a billion years
    The show is still here
    Not a single one of your fathers died young
    The handy travelers
    Out of Africa
    Little Lucy of the Afar

    Gave birth to fantasy
    To idolatry
    To self-destructive weaponry
    Enter the god of gaps
    Deep within the past
    Atavistic dread of the hunted

    Enter Ionia, the cradle of thought
    The architecture of understanding
    The human lust to feel so exceptional
    To rule the Earth

    Hunger for shiny rocks
    For giant mushroom clouds
    The will to do just as you?d be done by
    Enter history, the grand finale
    Enter Ratkind

    Man, he took his time in the sun
    Had a dream to understand
    A single grain of sand
    He gave birth to poetry
    But one day?ll cease to be
    Greet the last light of the library

    We were here!
    We were here!
    We were here!
    We were here!


    Iv. The Understanding


    V. Sea-Worn Driftwood
    "We are going to die,
    and that makes us the lucky ones.
    Most people are never going to die
    because they are never going to be born.
    The potential people who could have been here
    in my place but who will in fact
    never see the light of day
    outnumber the sand grains of Sahara.
    Certainly those unborn ghosts
    include greater poets than Keats,
    scientists greater than Newton.
    We know this because the set
    of possible people allowed by our Dna
    so massively exceeds the set of actual people.
    In the teeth of those stupefying odds it is you and I,
    in our ordinariness, that are here.
    We privileged few,
    who won the lottery of birth
    against all odds,
    how dare we whine at our inevitable return
    to that prior state from which the vast majority
    have never stirred?"
    [- Professor Richard Dawkins]

    "There is grandeur in this view of life,
    with its several powers,
    having been originally breathed
    into a few forms or into one;
    and that whilst this planet has gone
    cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity,
    from so simple a beginning
    endless forms most beautiful
    and most wonderful have been,
    and are being, evolved."
    [- Charles Darwin]
