(P2) Philosophical
More Heraklitus(Heraclitus) Fragments

"Pre-Socratic philosopher Heraklitus (also Heraclitus) was the sage of Ephesus where Joyce and I visited some time ago. Heir to the throne of Ephesus, Heraclitus gave up his kingdom and chose, instead of the trappings of power, to seek the word of wisdom. Twenty-five hundred years before Einstein, Heraclitus declared that energy is the essence of matter, that everything becomes energy in flux, in relativity: 'All things change to fire, and fire exhausted falls back into things.' His great book, On Nature, the world's first coherent philosophical treatise, has been long lost to history but its surviving fragments have for thousands of years tantalized our greatest thinkers...from Plato and Aristotle to Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Jung." (James Hillman).

The river
where you set
your foot just now
is gone --
those waters
giving way to this,
now this.

The harmony past knowing sounds
more deeply that the known.

(56)
The cosmos works
by harmony of tensions,
like the lyre and bow.

(57)
Therefore, good
and ill are one.

(110)
Sound thinking
is to listen well and choose
one course of action.
