Cosmos: A Poem

James Applewhite

Throughout his long career, Applewhite skillfully navigated the world of science through poetry. This book makes no exception, fearlessly exploring time and consciousness in relation to the universe as described by Big Bang cosmology and as experienced by human beings in the everyday world. Applying experiences from his everyday life and also a multitude of memories from his childhood to scientific theories of the nature of the universe, the poet engages in a patient but relentless and finally deeply rewarding quest for a sense of meaning in a cosmos whose dimensions of space and time defy the human capacity to imagine.
