It seems this is one of those quotes attributed to more than one author with varying versions but it looks like it may have been in existence prior to Stevenson.

Definitely a message I get behind.
Great vehicle to drive home the message too.
I should be taking notes on your approach...

Thanks for the praise and your observations.

On this subject, l was actually doing some reading about cosmology, quantum theories, and the computational dynamics’ view that the universe is basically one big computer processor compiling data. My thinking is, that data can logically be manipulated and so the phenomenon of reversing the aging process was always achievable. It's Interesting that you mention revolutions: it seems that every successive human revolution has interfaced, arisen, and been born out of the previous ones as the progressing technology and discoveries provide a continuing foundation. And this notion that the universe is a computer has been around for over a century now, so it stands to reason that set the groundwork for the advancements we’re seeing now (like my poem’s topic and AI, as you pointed out).

I am pondering submitting something a little more ‘down to earth’ though, because honestly, l knew this had no shot to place. I do like to gravitate beyond the laymen realms! I’m noticing there is always a genuine, humanity-esque aspect to the winning poems or a poetic-gimmick that sets it apart and collectively wins them over. I’m starting to think I have to get more creative or else just sit back and continue to spectate in these contests. I continue to enjoy being a part of them though and the temptation and curiosity to see if someone may respond to my style remains. Thanks for being a sounding-board among folks who maybe aren’t overly fascinated with ‘fringe’ topics. Incidentally, my Mother is having some health issues so my participation in forthcoming ones may not be a forgone conclusion.
I thought ‘Candy Land’ was unique and certainly possessed that IT FACTOR that I’m speaking to.
Catch you around ~

I wanted to comment here, l had some trouble finding this poem again though l, as l had forgotten the title. I felt this one stood out among the several in the contest on the theme of growing old and losing one’s vibrancy. I enjoyed this one more than the structured rhyming ones and was close to voting for it. Except for the second line, “long gone are the days when the earth’s heavenly ____ lays,” --it seems a word may have been omitted there as l found it confusing to interpret-- it had a great message and was not bogged down by meter or forced rhyming.
Sorry to say these contests are very competitive, and it is unfortunate we can only vote once. But good effort here!

I just wanted to comment here because, reading this and some of your others, it's just undeniable that you have an intriguing poetic style....it is an inviting breath that sweeps you along your peaks and pitfalls for a spell...l, for one, want to compliment you because it seems there is such deliberate intent behind your words that you clearly choose them carefully.

“Enraptured with the feelings of a mystic”
That’s all you needed to say for me to believe you love your home, but still, the imagey is palpable enough to support and anchor this sonnet.

I’ve been experimenting with this ‘writing from the heart’ concept but it leaves me feeling quite vulnerable and questioning whether anyone can grasp quite what l may be feeling or thinking. But I think the challenge is just to articulate best that which you mean--the interpretation will follow. --Excellent job as usual, a privilege to read!

Howdy ho, neighbor...yep, you know I like to switch it up and keep it interesting...really thought l might be headed for a vote or two this time but alas, came up empty. I really liked the theme I infused in this though, so I never feel any sense of defeat for having decided to share these without receiving much encouragement.

Indeed my small, inner-circle gets to enjoy these too, but unfortunately, I know more folks who DON’T really appreciate the poetic arts - and yet I continue undaunted!

At your suggestion, I checked out Robert T’s promotion and I found it a rather nifty composition, as well. There’s certainly something about sevens!

But that was cool to hear. There appears to be plenty of athletic genetics in your stock.
