A&O QUOTE – Poem about DEEP by Rilke


DEEP ETHOLOGY also refers to deep levels of organization that are as far into behavioral phenomena as possible before leaving science and entering metaphysics.   Rilke speaks to this …

If I were to tell you where my greatest feeling, my universal feeling,

the bliss of my earthly existence has been,

I would have to confess: It has always, here and there,

been in this kind of in-seeing,

in the indescribably swift, deep, timeless moments

of this divine seeing into the heart of things.

(Rainer Maria Rilke, 1987)
