outside of us

outside of us poem by steven james humphreys

funny how we know we exist…

we think there’s something outside of us

which exists, but there must be consciousness

to observe it. It’s quite like a tree which falls in the forest…

does it make a sound if no one is there to hear?

do we create the world in which we live in?

it may not seem so, but have we been tricked?

‘Einstein suddenly stopped, turned to Pais, and asked: ‘Do you really believe that the moon only exists if you look at it’? [1]
