We are leaving the age of certainty
We are leaving what we thought we knew
We are questioning our concepts of reality
“Because it’s always been that way” no longer holds true
Now the past is an unreliable predictor of the future
We are leaving the comfort of the known
We are entering the realm of possibilities
Which manifests the probability:
That the sun will rise tomorrow
That our hearts will go on beating
That there will be food in the refrigerator
and a roof over our heads.
Even though the light from some stars we see
has already gone out.
