93 Uncertainty Principle

by Dani Kopoulos

Another dream. This one with her head in a physics book. In the dream she is desperately trying to measure a very small thing. The thing is floating and inchoate, in front of her and then behind. She refers to her notes for instructions but when she looks up again it moves away. She pokes it and it disappears. She gives up trying to locate and record it. But as soon as she gives up observing, she’s overcome with the sense that it’s there after all. And that it’s looking at her.

When you try to observe and locate a Friend of God, he moves. But he’s there all along. Focus the microscope, bounce the photon and it’s another jump, a different momentum. The ultimate trickster, playing hide and seek between the human intellect and the human imagination.
