Confucius For King, again, of the whole world, five fifty
one to four seventy nine, to twenty twenty one and on,
moral alignment, from the stars, to the earth’s core,
through all systems and structures and humans, a way
of life, that has worked and will work again, with just a
modicum of imagination and the aid and assistance of
the third eye, to open the fourth slowly, to embrace all
humanity and insofar, as is possible, rather than
reasonably practicable, morality, in all its conceptual
frameworks and forms, for the good of all, then we have,
all good, good for all, golden flowing rivers, artistic
founts, leading to reservoirs, of all possible eternities.
