Diatom  - an art work by T Newfields
What would it feel like
to be a fraction of a hair in length
floating through an ocean of space?

What would it be like
to be encased in silicone
as geometry incarnate?

How would it feel
to have hundreds of microfibrils
as arms & legs?

No death – just division
No sex – just endless replication
No brain – just pure sensation

How would existence seem to a diatom
swimming in shells of silicate ?
Soo: Can you feel the spark within image & poem?
Philyra: Yeah. Diatoms are miniature fusion reactors. When you think about what they do – take the energy of the sun and produce life – it's amazing.
Soo: What would it feel like to be a diatom?
Philyra: It would be a whole different reality, wouldn't it?
Elijah: Yep. Our world is filled with multiple realities. Only a small fraction seem "human."
