Cocteau Twins – It’s All But An Ark Lark
Categories: MF Blog 2013

Okay, I know this might be asking a lot of you wonderful new Facebook followers….maybe even a lot of my decade old followers.  But bear with me here.

Lately, I have been reading a lot on our solar system and with some of the new things I have learned about what we as humans have come to know about everything that is spinning around the sun with us…I have come to one very clear understanding.  To start, when you consider the three scales of time, matter and space, each has the bookends of infinitesimal and infinite.  At first, I found myself thinking about how we need to understand where we are at any given time on the scale of each to truly understand our lives, but the more I read and the more I pondered, the more I realised this:

If you created a line scale that stretched from your open eye to the outermost cloud of Jupiter (we’ll use the greatest distance of 601 million miles), with your eye being infinitesimal and Jupiter’s cloud being infinite, your personal existence in time, space and matter would best be represented by the mark closest to the surface of your eye.  I will go one step further and suggest that the entire history of mankind….all we know and all we will ever come to be is best represneted by being pressed perfectly against that mark of you.

So, my one conclusion? It’s all but an ark lark.
