Chewing on this

I read this wonderful post of Kate Shrewsday’s
before going to sleep last night and it got me thinking (they always do)

Six impossible things before breakfast

A world without the power of money,
a sun-powered world

Journeys across a borderless globe,
Inter-universe journeys

Born old, growing young,
Spinal cords
growing in a window box


Impossible possibilities? What are your thoughts? πŸ˜€

  1. Bluebee, I’m honoured πŸ™‚ Thank you for the link and so chuffed to have set you thinking. I love your six impossible things:Dodgson would have loved you last stanza, I bask in the first πŸ™‚

  2. It was a wonderful post πŸ™‚ Here goes (well, you did ask for our thoughts) – I think ‘a world without the power of money’ is possible and would have happened in the good old stone age and might happen again if humans become extinct ;); ‘a sun-powered world’ would be marvellous and not out of the realms of possibility (I envisage a moon sized solar dish floating in outer space but attached to the planet by a massive bunjy cord which transmits the power to earth). ‘A borderless globe’ – again, would be nice and is possible now given a non-human frame of reference (birds without borders, marsupials without maps, sharks without visas etc.,). ‘Inter-universe journeys’ assumes that things can exist apart from the existence of everything – so yes, impossible indeed! ‘Born old, growing young’ – yes, impossible but referred to in a metaphorical way by Bob Dylan (yes, I know you don’t like him but a good 50% or more of the world are quite fond of him – haha). I have no idea about spinal cords and window boxes, but sounds good to me.

    My two cents – ‘humans without any prejudices’ (impossible).

    Great poem bluebee (sure gets the thought juices flowing). Stop me, I’m rambling …

    • Ramble on, Gabe! I love your reply πŸ˜€ particularly the bunjy cord solar dish, haha. You have a sharp memory (perhaps I should attempt to read Dylan, rather than suffer the torture of his nasal whining…am I in danger of being lynched? ;-)) Your reply to inter-universe hurts my brain, but your two cents makes perfect sense – it would be a wonderful thing. Thanks πŸ˜€

      • Lots of people hate Dylan so I think you are safe from lynching – hahaha (you either love him or hate him). You can scrap my inter-universe sentence – I was thinking that you meant there was more than one universe which according to the definition of universe should not be possible (ie., the universe is everything in existence) but apparently there might be inter-universe worm holes so now I am really confused (does inter mean between or across eg., inter-galactic – across galaxies or within galaxies). I’m starting to think nothing is impossible πŸ™‚

  3. I love it when other bloggers inspire something, but this is incredible. The idea of spinal cords growing in a window box…fabulous! Kate did a good thing when she wrote that post.

    One of your best.

  4. Your posts make me laugh or cry or think or simply appreciate the planet – sometimes all at once. My impossible possibilities have to do with the human relationship to this beautiful sphere and the other creatures on it. Will we some day recognize and appreciate our limitations as a species?

  5. I am blown away by the idea of a world without the power of money. I could cry thinking about it because so many of my relationships have been destroyed because of money. You are a dear, dear person to say such a thing. This whole post reminds me of Lennon’s ‘Imagine.’ If only, Bluebee. If only….

    • Too often it’s used as a weapon of control and mass destruction when it could be used to eradicate poverty – I don’t think that’s an impossibility. Thanks, Selma πŸ™‚

    • Quite a bizarre concept – be interesting to see how many would actually use it and whether there would be enough natural energy funelled down in winter to sustain it – thanks, Nursemyra
