Phenomena-na is a new wave meditation on free will and consciousness in a material universe.
We’re made of matter,
And electromagnetic bonds,
Our minds don’t matter,
Emerging from spinning atoms,
Our brains are wired,
To generate these illusions,
We fool ourselves, we make,
Narratives from decisions.
Live and love and work and play and go about your everyday,
Help or hurt, then die and dirt, pretending like we make our own way,
It’s phenomenal: it’s all phenomena,
There is not will there, we’re all just automatons,
It’s so phenomenal: it’s all phenomena,
There is no will there, we’re all just phenomena-na!
