What’s in a word? A thought? A fear? A hope?
What’s in a number? A fact? A description? Usually not much really.
Not in just one number anyway.
One number isn’t much. Trillions of them to choose from. What’s just one?
But from one number I can calculate doomsday…the end of all humanity,
the end of all existence, of all hope, of all dreams.
Doomsday is the essence of fear for humanity and
I can tell when it is with one number. Just one.
I feel so powerful, yet so lost.
Note: See the “How close is doomsday” article in my statistics blog to understand why I wrote this ‘poem’ http://www.scoop.it/t/statistics-software
