freestyle sonnet #040: THINKING ABOUT IBN SINA'S FLYING MAN ARGUMENT

Metaphysics beta data statistics say
meh, whatever forever, sever five senses
sense of am I experienced, leaving blank grey
space with person flying, sans physical fences

of body, and whatever we is will still
realize existence, regardless of internal
organs or even brain. Yet, how to explain will,
and its connection to consciousness? Truth kernel

explodes into hot popular misconception;
"I"s grasp transplanted educations with more force
than innate notions intuited, introspection
seen as deceiving scientific method's course.

"I" don't know though - this is universal, we know;
but contemplating through self's not same as ego.
