Existence as Concept2.jpg
  Our grasp of the universe and all it contains
Is as concept: therein is the secret to continuity.
Therein is the resolution of the bafflement
Of philosophers who deny being and presence.

They deny being and presence, while grasping
Conceptually this quality in existing things
As enables their naming ' a book, a table, an orange,
Perceived In themselves as constantly in flux

As if to elude definition, but in concept
Are defined: that is where they are fixed for use:
Even words are fixed concepts and can be arranged
To communicate fixed concepts of meaning.

It is because the world of things is conceptual
In its fixity, that it can be represented in thought,
And seamlessly we can transfer between thing
Perceived and the retained image of perception.

Our grasp of reality is conceptual, and the world
Is conceptually defined, affording the fixity
We rely upon for process realization that fits
Reality, that proves the world to be as it exists.
