Would God Just Smash It Or…

Just another poem I’d written thus far.  Enjoy!

If God is here today,
sitting in the kitchen to eat,
to drink and to brighten up the mood,
when a cockroach runs by,
would he just smash it to hell???
or would he just ignore it and dine on???
keeping his spirit high,
even though he feels ill,
for the cockroach is one hell of a sight.

You can hate me for thinking that,
how God is similar to us,
when something is unwholesome as a cockroach,
skipping by us, scrambling quick and dirty,
dirtying our mood as we dine our blessing,
but it’s all going to hell,
for a cockroach is in the house,
and we are quick to grab hold onto something,
big and strong and sturdy,
so we could smash the damn thing,
smash it into little pieces,
so we can feel even more disgusted,
by the sight of its splattered ooze,
but a spider had scrambled by earlier,
we did nothing to it,
and laughed on while we dined,
as if the spider was meant to run free by us,
and here is the smashed ooze from the cockroach,
disgustingly forcing us to scramble,
for something to clean up the unwholesome sight,
the ooze that is.

If God is dining with his friends,
sitting up high in heaven,
drinking and smiling to brighten up the mood,
when a human runs by,
would he just smash it or…

In God’s Image (Poem by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poem I’d written thus far.  Enjoy!!!

Hundreds of billions of stars twinkle in the sky,
dotting the sky with light where darkness reigns,
ironically, blinding bright as the sun in the sky,
stars are shrouded by mysteries where darkness reigns.

Astronomers ponder upon the stars for universal mysteries,
just so the mysteries of the stars would reveal the sea,
the sea of the stars where the universe is full of history,
a history which has been shrouded by mysteries that be.

Pondering upon the stars they have been full of stirs,
slowly they have worked out some of the mysteries,
oh, super-massive black holes dot the universe,
stirring the wise astronomers into the miseries.

Could it be the universe was begun with a bang?
They’re convinced big bang was the mother of the universe,
a bang, then boom, somehow the elements formed the gangs,
these gangs are full of mysteries in this universe.

Personally, I love to fancy the universe as a human body,
as the stars and universal mysteries form cells for the flesh,
the cells would fight to survive or die out within the body,
just so to leave space for the newcomers to be their best.

If one to believe the opposite of infinity is finite,
then one must accept the universe too must age and extinct,
thus the body mirrors the universe that will die,
and all the cells within will too go extinct.

Perhaps, each God creates the universe in his own image,
as the universe dies, a God too would go into extinction,
because each universe could be a body in God’s image,
literally, pushing his worshippers into a universal extinction.

Perhaps, this way, it’s not wrong to worship one true God.
Perhaps, worshipping more than one true God isn’t wrong either,
because each universe is a body of a God,
and so there are many Gods in the ether.

Gods should stop fighting among each other,
because doing so would dance to the devil’s tunes,
and bringing the destruction to our mothers,
while the devil is dancing to his happy tunes.

Chicken And Egg Theory Marches On!

When an egg decides to hatch a chick, an egg must have wondering who’d hatched it.  When we human beings came to being, we probably had wondered countless time who hatched us, right?  Furthermore, we probably had wondered about the purposes of all the wonders on this earth and within this universe.  For an example, we must have thought hard about the perfect marriage of male and female of all types of beings.  Furthermore, when there is day, night must follow soon.  Furthermore, these creations are for whom to enjoy?

With the chicken and egg curiosity, groups of different society within human population decided to form their own religions to explain the universe and all of its secrets.  Then science came to prominent, and it was too intended that it was a more proper way of approaching the chicken and egg curiosity.  Still, so far there is yet a satisfactory explanation to this chicken and egg question of our universe.  Whenever a specific religion or science tries to explain the chicken and egg curiosity, a complete satisfactory explanation isn’t really realized.

For an example, if a religion said that their God had created this universe, then we must have to wonder who had created God?  If a science said that Big Bang had created this universe, then we must have to wonder who had created Big Bang?  This curiosity seems like a question that cannot be answered clearly, because the chicken and egg theory can go into an infinity.  Furthermore, we have to wonder, if there is night, then there is day…  if there is infinity, then there is a limitation.  So, I guess if we are to be clever, we must have wondered the chicken and egg curiosity must have a finite explanation.

Still, I have to wonder, can an infinity gives birth to a finite existence, and then a finite existence would in turn giving birth to an infinity?  Otherwise, how can we explain what had given birth to an infinity?  Thus, the chicken and egg curiosity marches on!

Speechless

This poem depicts the feeling that I had when I got to read the grueling content therein of “THAILAND: Muslims in the South are slaughtering Buddhists in order to ethnically cleanse the area (WARNING: Graphic Images)” blog post.  I condemn (although I’m a nobody) all violences!!!  I don’t see how any violence would solve anything, because violences in general only breeds more violences.  Of course, the argument goes that if one side would do enough terrors, more so than the other side, then the other side will give up in terror.  I doubt that will be the case if the other side doesn’t have a choice in defending themselves.  Plus, violence such as killing is so uncivilized, and here I thought we humans are better than this.  Aren’t we nowadays have easier access to education than centuries ago?  Aren’t we humans know what peace mean?  If peace mean peace, why on earth peace has to let violence leads the way?  Sure, you can say violence first, peace after, but I refute such a thought.  To me, violence first means hatred can be spread farther…  there is no guaranty that violence first can solve anything.  Nonetheless, if all sides use peace first, only peace can derive from peace.  It is almost, if not 100%, a guaranty that peace will always derive from peace.  I think killing is the worst of the worst that there is for being human.  Killing will never be justified for anything.  If a God wants someone to kill another human being, he/she doesn’t deserve to be my God!  Period!!!  Us humans face tough life from the day we born, certainly we don’t really need violence to be the additional bit to the tough life equation.  Survival of day to day life is already so tough, because not everyone is lucky to be born into a wealthy family or meeting the best opportunity in life.  Most likely, many people will be sweating their ass off just to make ends meet.  The unfortunates might have to face terminal diseases.  Yet here we have senseless killing in the name of God.  It’s just plain wrong!  Isn’t a spiritual belief supposed to be peaceful?  I think I should rephrase that!  Aren’t all spiritual beliefs supposed to be peaceful?  Anyhow, if you like, please enjoy the poem right after the break!

  • Rumor had it,
  • or the truth had it,
  • whatever had it.
  • Nonetheless, I had read it.
  • Got disgusted!
  • I cringed at it!
  • Feeling ill just to picture it!
  • Got disgusted!
  • I cringed at it!
  • Such sadistic!
  • Got disgusted!
  • Idiotic!
  • Only animals would do it!
  • Got disgusted!
  • Speechless!!!
  • Not a single word can define it.
  • Sadistic!
  • Animalistic!
  • And yet I just know about it.
  • Shaking my fist at this animalistic shit!
  • Idiots!
  • Got disgusted!
  • Only animals would do it.
  • I got mad as hell at this animalistic shit!
  • Nonetheless, one thinks of it,
  • what goes around comes around, isn’t it?

Imagination: Imagine, A Universe Is A Holy Womb Which Nourishes A Holy Infant

The supermassive black holes are all that rema...

Here is another blog post of which I’m sure will stir up some controversies regardless of its actual intention.  I guess, I’m calling it another fantastical imaginary session.  I won’t say what I’m about to spew is actually my belief, because I intend for this piece to be pure fiction.  Nonetheless, some people might take this as something real and be offended by it.  For me, I imagine this fantasy piece is of science fiction meets fictional Gods.

Anyhow, just imagine in a world that there are many Gods.  Before a new God can spring into the existence, God must be born.  Before God must be born, a hot soup of universe nourishes the planets, stars, black holes, and countless other energies.  In a way, we can imagine that each universe is a womb that nourishes a holy infant.  When the universe gives birth to a holy infant, the holy infant would become God eventually.  After the birth of a holy infant, the specific universe would cease to exist.

For those who think this is rather offensive to your religion, just think this is a writing of a fantasy, science fictional kind of writing.  For those who like to believe if there is some truth to this, you need to know this is just an imagination.  Make up yours!  OK?  This piece isn’t about religion, but it’s more of a fantasy prose where science fiction meets fictional Gods.

Afterthought:  In a way, isn’t it cool if a sperm knows that in its entire lifespan, it’s working toward the goal of creating a human being when it penetrates the egg?

Philosophical Speaking Me, Someone Had Used Math To Start A Big Bang

In this blog post, I like to be philosophical.  So let me begin with saying that we all know math is a universal language right?  If I’m wrong, then please pardon me.  I believe in my deepest core that math is a universal language, and I sometimes imagine even aliens out there somewhere in different parts of our universe might be speaking in math, whether their math is more advance or otherwise.  We can use math to see how our universe works, and so in a sense we can safely assume math is universally universe within this universe.

Going to the extreme scales, math works as well.  Whether the scale of the universe or the scale of quantum universe, we know math will work when we really apply math to solve problems in the contexts of such impossible scales.  Even if a scale is infinitely large or infinitely small, we know infinite is possible with math!  How?  We can’t really discount that infinitely large or small is the impossible, because it’s all about what comes after the infinite.  Just imagine this, in the days without plane and jets and rockets, when we stared up into the sky, we could only think it as infinitely far.  Then one day we got ourselves beyond those clouds with technology, suddenly the next infinite boundary would be the universe itself.  So, we can see that infinite is not really infinite if we try, and infinite is really infinite by nature is super rare.  We can say this in another way that infinite is the same as finite, because finite becomes infinite and infinite becomes finite.  The universe is one of those perfect infinite/finite cases.

Why on earth am I ranting on infinite and finite?  I’m not a math person at all, and I really mean it!  Therefore, my speaking of infinite and finite must have a reason, right?  Well, I’m not so sure if I call my curiosity of thinking that some higher being has a roadmap for everything that already was set in motion before time as a reason, because it’s rather a conjecture to some people and nonsense to many others.  Let put the argument of common sense aside, and let get crazy.  So, what am I mean by some higher being has a roadmap for everything that already was set in motion before time?  Well, I’m trying to say that perhaps someone or some force very much like the almighty being that people called God had used math to calculate every jittering in every scales of every matter that composed of our universe and possibly other universes too if the theory about many universes in fact is the undeniable truth.  However infinitely small or large the scales of things, it’s possible still for him/her to calculate things before time — as in knowing things before things even happen.  How?  Take a look at software that had been written by programmers in the past decades; from simple to sophisticated software, we can see that things were set in motion before the users actually use the software.  So, I think math can allow calculation of the jittering of energy and matter and of all things within this universe to be drafted before time, and then with a snap of two fingers — he/she commanded all things to begin.  We call that the big bang, I guess!  Everything else happened and happens after will just have to be within the limitation of the calculation of such a being.  This is why we do have the law of nature such as physics.  By saying that, I realize we may have more than one law of physics, because another universe might carry a different law of physics.

Isn’t that a crazy idea?  Well, I’m not a religious zealot!  I can’t say I’m a Christian or Buddhist, because sometimes I feel I need both religions to get my days going.  I’m not a person who hates science and think religions hold all the answers.  In fact, I think religions need science and science needs religions.  OK, to tell the truth, this is the new me, because in the past (i.e., in my very young age) when I was barely able to write a complete English sentence, I was totally into of believing Buddhas and God weren’t real and science was everything.  To tell the truth, the new me believes in anything is possible, and so as long we aren’t sure about something, it’s best to assume there is something and that something is possible.  Of course, the possibility that there isn’t anything is there, and so it’s too possible.  You see?
