    Chen-ou,

    Thank you for showing how much (or little) we know by using so few (or many) words.

    hear and there,

    Neal

    A first rate haiku. The contrast between the hugeness of the Milky Way and the “bits” that compose our idea of self is well-illustrated. And, I like the gradual loss of self as it contemplates what is itself and beyond itself.

    Neal and Jack, your thoughtful replies are far more better than my poem. I enjoyed reading them very much. Many thanks!
