surrogates for the universal

the scientific method WAS a means of witnessing the intricacy of God’s intelligence. The almost pious nature of the scientific method allowed for science to be seen as indicating universality, but only through relative experience. Science provided a methodology for understanding the universal operations of secondary cause, while building the maxims underlying these operations from relative contexts. The scientific experience of the 17th century was defined by the singular and historical event experiment, which acted as a surrogate for universal experience.

Pride is born The first time you know yourself
to be a stranger From dark matter
--humanity made with anti-human means—

Pride, a refuge—
A frustrated elegy
for the charms of cosmos

Belittled schizophrenia of fallen dew
Without origin
a sense of competitive species
