“Friends don’t let friends lose their capacity for humanity.”
    ~ Barbara L. Fredrickson, “Your Phone vs. Your Heart”, New York Times editorial, March 23, 2013

No one can think through
How one thinks
As Kurt Gödel made clear
Mind doesn’t contain itself
Sufficiently to grasp
As some think
Machines can get to thinking
Through guided evolution
Doesn’t another path exist
As creation of intuitive programmer
Should one come along
To be refuted by academics
Who’ll say why this is nothing
But a loopy self-referential pile of pasta
No one can think through
