Omar Khayyam wonders and writes of the human condition,

The sphere upon which mortals come and go,
Has no end nor beginning that we know;
And none there is to tell us in plain truth:
Whence do we come and whither do we go.
—Ahmad Saidi version

and concludes, eventually, after coming full circle from his deconstructions of religious myth-takes,

Ah, make the most of what we yet may spend,

Before we too into the Dust descend;

Dust into Dust, and under Dust to lie

Sans Wine, sans Song, sans Singer, and — sans End!
—FitzGerald version

which philosophy I totally agree with, although,

The search for the ultimate truth sublime
Of all that is leads us wise through its clime,
Both within and without—a swelling quest;
For then we know this place for the first time.
—Austin P. Torney

So, herein, we’ll meander on through life’s curious magic-shadow show, with some new quatrains, along with Omar transmogrifications.

Here is something that’s not in the book, although hinted at:

The Short Theory of Being and Everything

=

Matter
(the What)
Moving
(Then —> When)

in

Space
(the Where)

due to

A Nothing that couldn’t be.
(The Why)

All possibilities are open,
since there’s no point
to impart a specific direction
to the causeless ‘IS’
that can have no beginning
(can’t get something from nothing).
(The How)

The simplicity of the Three,
Matter in Motion through Space,

(protons)
led to the
!
!
V
Stars

that in turn formed
!
V
The Atomic Elements

that combined into
!
V
Molecules and Planets

that led to
!
V
Cells

that arranged and evolved into
!
V
Life

that further composited
!
V
Brains and Senses and Bodies

that led to
!
V
Experiences

and our
!
V
Consciousness of them,

involving our capabilities of

History
(What + Then)

and

Progression
(What + When)

through

Memory
(Where + Then)

and

Wishes
(Where + When)

that further fueled

Change in Structure
(History + Progression)

and

Change in Outlook
(Memory + Wishes)

and

Learning
(Memory + History)

and

Vision
(Wishes + Progress)

that further blended

into

Creation
(Learning + Change in Structure)

and

Direction
(Learning + Change in Outlook)

and

Growth
(Change in Outlook + Vision)

and

Planning
(Vision + Change in Structure)

all of which is

the Living of a life
or

Being
(The Who)
.

Neither nothing nor infinity can be,
As Nothing is not there and so ‘it’ cannot be,
And infinity can never be reached,
Being a hopeless sequence ne’er completed.

Matter had to be, although not forever so;
Thus, there was was creation of things that grow,
Via the ‘something’ of no laws, form, time or fee—
That which needs nothing before it: Possibility.
