Cosmic Mind

Sokrates:
"Many years ago in bright Parthenon,
when I heard Anaxagoras describe
cosmic mind that activates force of life,
creating world that sustains mental dream,
and explain how eternal mind controls
process of change to form bodies from flesh,
causing elements to revolve in shapes
and causing chaos to order all things,
I felt timeless consciousness of one god
who permeates boundless and timeless worlds
wake inside my mind, so I know myself,
small frail shell of flesh glowing with great light.
We are projections of eternal Zeus,
imperfect men reflecting perfect God."

from Ideas of Aristokles Platon
Hermead Vol 4 (coming soon)

God Is Us
© Surazeus
2015 07 03

God is an invention of the human mind,
conflating several forces and phenomena
that we observe at work in the universe,
mindless forces of nature and political power.

Men see the sun shining and causing life,
and see the wind blowing and causing life,
and see the rain falling and causing life,
so they conclude those forces of nature
are conscious and causing life to occur.

Men see things moving and causing things
to move and thus causing other things to move,
so they conclude there is a Prime Mover
who first caused everything to move and live.

Men see every group of men and women
controlled and organized by a wiser man
who reigns over them by force of his strength
or by power of his intellectual wisdom,
and judges over disputes between people,
and manages projects to organize well
social process of production through ritual.

Men conflate these mindless forces of nature
and social positions of power to invent
concept of God as the great creative force
who creates and manages the entire universe.

Our universe is an enormous cluster
of sparkling atoms that spiral and aggregate
to form clouds of gas that form burning stars
that crush atoms together to form molecules
that interact based on number of electrons
and thus form planets that revolve around stars.

Thriving on the surfaces of rich planets
that revolve just the right distance from the sun,
organic life develops through natural processes
of chemical interactions between molecules
based on number of electrons that conform
vibrant structures of their spinning bodies.

Thus there is a natural creative force of life
that evolves from single atoms to complex forms,
but this creative force is not conscious nor alive.

Consciousness is a function of complex brains
that perceive light reflecting off all objects
and generate virtual worlds to reflect real world
in models of real things within neural networks
of atoms that beam visions of things they perceive,
and thus each creature who wakes from dream
and becomes aware of itself as alive and real
creates a model of the universe in its mind.

Vast collections of atoms in galaxies and stars
are not conscious of themselves as alive
but they interact in natural processes
of chemical interactions based on number
of electrons that form organic creatures
whose eyes and brains collect memories of action
and then glow with cognitive conscious awareness.

Humans saw the sun and wind providing life
that seem to act with consciousness we possess,
so they described natural forces as gods,
then humans saw tribes and nations of people
are always controlled by one powerful man
who claims to be greatest authority on Earth,
and so we conflate both concepts in one God.

God is an invention of the human mind
that conflates the mindless forces of nature
with the process of controlling political power
and thus man creates god in his own image
and imbues him with supernatural power
to create and manage the existence of all things.

The universe is assembled by a creative force
but that force is not conscious nor alive,
while we humans are the only ones alive
on this spinning ball of dirt, air, water, and fire,
and we are the ones conscious of ourselves,
thus we are the gods who now control nature.

God is the conscious creative force of love
who wakes up inside our dreaming minds.

Flag Of Slavery
© Surazeus 2015 06 28

After four hundred years of sweat and tears,
of one race slaving at the will of another,
subservient to their commands and whips,
growing rich crops and building fancy homes,
Liberty fights back with strong hand of justice
on the glorious day when Bree climbs a flagpole
and tears down the vile flag of slavery.

Long after four years of bloody civil war
defeated states rights of arrogant men
to own other people and make them work
without pay to increase their obscene wealth,
Liberty fights back with strong hand of justice
on the glorious day when Bree climbs a flagpole
and tears down the vile flag of slavery.

After one hundred fifty years of work
to establish equal civil rights as law
for every man and woman who works hard
to earn deserved pay for talent and skill,
Liberty fights back with strong hand of justice
on the glorious day when Bree climbs a flagpole
and tears down the vile flag of slavery.

As we gather before capitol house
in every state from sea to shining sea
to demand strong reign of justice and truth
over men who exploit others for wealth,
Liberty fights back with strong hand of justice
on the glorious day when Bree climbs a flagpole
and tears down the vile flag of slavery.

Without A Name
© Surazeus
2015 06 27

When I travel the signless road
and listen to the whispering moon,
I hear your voice among the trees
that leads me to the rising sun.
I walk alone nowhere without a name,
searching the world for heaven I create.

Though I was born from ancient hall
and wear the crown of shining gems,
I climb the wall of broken stone
and leave behind your heaven dream.
I walk alone nowhere without a name,
searching the world for heaven I create.

I stand alone on the cold shore
of the pond where swans flap their wings,
and stare at the ghost in clear light
who reaches out her hands to me.
I walk alone nowhere without a name,
searching the world for heaven I create.

I grip a stone in pale white hands
and scratch chanting runes in dry dust,
then cry aloud to empty sky
calling my father to come back.
I walk alone nowhere without a name,
searching the world for heaven I create.

Rainbow beams bright after storm rain
to cast rays of light in my eyes,
so I stare at swirling white clouds
when they form face my father wore.
I walk alone nowhere without a name,
searching the world for heaven I create.

I pull a baby from my flesh
who opens eyes and smiles at me,
so she suckles milk at my breast
though I wither and fade away.
I walk alone nowhere without a name,
searching the world for heaven I create.

Vision of the Hermead Epic of Philosophers

If anyone thinks that composing the longest epic poem in western literature might be tedious and boring, I assure you the opposite is true. I have spent the past four years while composing the first 119,000 lines of blank verse in the Hermead of Surazeus​ in a state of visionary ecstasy in the few hours every evening that I devote to its composition.

Writing a long narrative poem about the lives and ideas of philosophers is a thrilling adventure of discovery, like watching a long and complicated television miniseries whose plot unfolds as I type, or like designing each tiny piece of an enormous puzzle of human history while I assemble it piece by piece.

I hope people read the Hermead with the same excitement of discovery about the origins of philosophy and science as I feel while writing each tale about the often exciting life of philosophers whose ideas form the foundation of how we view the world and the universe.

Though I have written biographical tales about 26 Greek philosophers so far, this is only a small segment of the tales I hope to write as I plot the development of the history of science that lead to the advanced technological civilization of our modern global society.

Reading the Hermead, epic of philosophers, is to experience the emergence of humanity from the dream time of myth as philosophers laid the foundation for modern science and technology.

Unheard Prayer Of Orion
© Surazeus
2015 07 01

My brain floats in the Horsehead Nebula,
shooting across the emptiness of space.
I look sideways in the mirror of time
and see infinity in the mask of my face.

I ride my swift horse in the river vale,
hunting the sharp-pronged stag among fake stars.
I become a robot with machine mind
when I convert wagons to motor cars.

I pray to Helius who creates our world
but he never returns my first phone call.
I rewire the blank radio of my brain
and hide as Buddha under the waterfall.

Existence and Substance
from Causes of Aristoteles
coming soon in Hermead Vol 4

Aristoteles:
"Like Pythagoras envisioned, our world
begins from one single point, pulsing Monad,
One solid particle that multiplies
in Trinity of points that connect tight
to form Triangle, basic shape of matter,
then countless triangles interconnect
to weave enclosing web of surfaces
that consolidate matter into forms.
Thus solid things composed of vibrant matter
stand out in existing shapes that transform
through gradient stages of growing change,
while four stock elements of basic matter
stand under existing shapes as pure substance.
Like giant wise spider of beaming light,
Demiurgos weaves Ideas into our world,
molding matter with pure patterns of purpose."

Birth and Death 
from Causes of Aristoteles 
Hermead Vol 4 

We see living creatures, humans and horses, 
birthed from mothers after fathers spark life, 
so we drink milk and consume herbs and meat 
which stuff our bodies with matter of flesh, 
thus we grow from infants to running children 
to mature adults in vigor of life, 
pulsing with passion of blood and soul wind, 
then injured, diseased, or aging we wither 
till hot animating spirit abandons 
aching flesh of hunger, and bodies crumble 
to constituent particles of matter.

Epic Poet and Cartographer
Introduction
Angelus of Anglonesia. 

I am a cartographer, geospatial analyst, and terrain developer by day, and epic poet by night. 

I am writing an epic poem in blank verse titled Hermead about scientists and inventors of civilization. This bible for atheists and scientists is now 112,000 lines of blank verse covering the lives of 25 Greek philosophers.

My legal name is Simon Seamount though I was born Albert Bruce Craig II. My mother's maiden name Seamount is from the Swedish name Sjoberg.

I use the name Surazeus as my pen name.

I have been writing narrative poems for 25 years and have recently organized them into books and ebooks.

eBooks for Kindle on Amazon.

I posted about 200 songs I wrote and composed at http://youtube.com/surazeus but do not expect anything more than amateur fun folk singing.

I was born in Oregon in the Year of the Beatles, grew up in Texas in the 1970s, went to high school and college in Takoma (Washington state) in the 1980s. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts in 1988 at Washington State University. After living in Seattle for a few years, I hitchhiked around the country playing grunge folk in the 1990s.

I got a job as web designer at State of Michigan 1999-2004, then earned a Master of Science in Geographic Information Science 2005-8 at Michigan State University.

I have since lived in North Carolina and now in Georgia working as a cartographer. Where will I go next on the journey of life? My goal is to become a Professor of Literature at Harvard, which was founded by my ancestor, Thomas Dudley.

In SecondLife I am Surazeus Thor
https://my.secondlife.com/surazeus.thor

I married an Indonesian Muslim woman from Java Island and we have two cute daughters I named for goddesses of wisdom -- Saraswati and Athena.

I am generally a Gnostic Humanist. I do not know if there is a God or not, but the gods of history were humans who had a large influence on their times. What is most important is that I know myself and understand my perceptions, and recreate them in verse.

I am descended 13 generations from the Puritan Poet Anne Bradstreet. Her father, Thomas Dudley, signed the charter to found Harvard, and was descended from the Sutton-Dudley clan of Elizabethan England, who were descended from Joan of Acre, daughter of King Edward I and Eleanor of Castile.

My religion is Astarism. 

Astarism honors First Mother Astara Ishtar Athena.

Ishtar sent Abraham and Sarah west and they founded Assurism, Olympism, Apollonism, Zoroastrianism, Mithraism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Sufism, and all their branches and offshoots.

Ishtar sent Brahma and Saraswati east and they founded Hinduism, Vaishnism, Shaivism, Buddhism, Krishnaism, Sikhism, and all their branches and offshoots.

Astarism includes all those religions as one.
