Look at one STAR
to conquer TIME
Feel the infinite infinite
of infinity

No Matter how far Away
We are all in the same moment
the same time
Even though what we see
is actually what we saw
Eons Ago.

Time is a Mobius Strip?
The outside is the inside
Both sides the same side
We can't figure it out.

The present side is the past side
Both times are the same time
We can't figure it out.

The present side is the past side
Both times are the same time
We can't figure it out.

Future Side Inside Our Brain-side
We see side present side
Will be instant Now-Side
inside our eye-side
Becoming the blind side
of the past side
Remembered in our past side.

  1. In 1858 August Ferdinand Möbius discovered the Möbius strip, a non-orientable 2-dimensional surface with only 1 side when embedded in 3-dimensional Euclidean space. Johann Benedict Listing discovered it at the same time but did not gain naming rights although he went further in exploring the properties of strips with higher-order twists (paradromic rings). A line drawn starting from the seam down the middle of a Möbius strip meets back at the seam but at the other side, and if continued it meets the starting point but is double the length of the original strip. Cutting a Möbius strip along the center line yields 1 long strip with 2 full twists in it instead of 2 separate strips because the original strip only has 1 edge that is twice as long as the original strip: Cutting creates a 2nd independent edge, 1/2 of which was on each side of the scissors, so cutting this new, longer, strip down the middle creates 2 strips wound around each other, each with 2 full twists. If the strip is cut about 1/3 of the way from the edge 2 strips are created, 1 a thinner Möbius strip and 1 a longer thin strip with 2 twists in it, comprising 1/3 of the width and twice the length of the original strip. In 1882 Felix Klein devised the Kleinsche Flasche (Klein Bottle) as a 3-dimensional Möbius strip, a non-orientable object with no boundary (the strip is a surface with a boundary). Mathematician Leo Moser summarized the progression thus:

    A mathematician named Klein
    Thought the Möbius band was divine.
    Said he: "If you glue
    The edges of two,
    You'll get a weird bottle like mine."
