Univerzum zna (English translation)

Univerzum zna

Krenuli smo peške uz neko stenje.
Kit je stajao kod kola, proveravajući nekoliko puta da li su zaključana.
Zastali smo na jednom uzvišenju.
Svako je pošao na svoju stranu
tražeći vlastiti prostor.
Shelley je otišla do same ivice, gde se stena spuštala strmo ka okeanu.
Izgledala je kao bela tačka na plavom. Osetio sam...
Bela tačka na plavom. Ili pukotina u plavom. Osetio sam muku, eto šta sam osetio. Hteo sam da niko ne bude pored mene ako budem morao da povraćam. Spustio sam se levom stranom do okeana, preskačući nasukana debla. Seo sam i počeo da posmatram površinu vode.
Neko je seo pored mene.
Video sam svaku kapljicu. Video sam atome iz kojih je
svaka pojedinačna kapljica bila sastavljena. Video sam okean u delovima, kao mozaik.
Talas je udarao o stenje i razgolićavao se preda mnom: sve delove sam mu upoznao, atomi su bili krupni u odnosu na ono što sam ja video. Otrkio sam nove čestice, sitnije od atoma, trebalo ih je nekako nazvati i celu stvar patentirati. Koga da obavestim o ovome? Snagom pogleda, ponovo sam sitne deliće sastavljao u talas i vraćao ga u okean. Igrao sam se sa talasom, onda s drugim, najzad s celim okeanom. Imao sam kontrolu. Kontrolu...
i onda, znao sam da bih morao da se osećam čudno, ali ništa mi nije bilo čudno. Znao sam da je ljudsko oko savršenije od bilo kog teleskopskog mikroskopa, da ga je trebalo pravilno iskoristiti, to je sve. Oko u mojoj službi, kontrola...
Sedeo sam tako satima. Onda sam odlučio da ustanem. DOneo sam odluku, razmišljao sam o važnosti promene položaja tela, ugla, rastojanja. Doneo sam odluku da ustanem. Pošao sam polako obalom, napravio sam nekoliko koraka i šta me nateralo da se okrenem?
Neko snažno osećanje, magnet, gubljenje kontrole. Pogledao sam ka mestu gde sam do malopre sedeo. JA SAM I DALJE SEDEO TAMO, ZUREĆI BESCILJNO U OKEAN.
Osetio sam znoj, kosa mi se digla na glavi. Shvatio sam, na trenutke, da sam jednim delom ostao tamo, a drugim otišao kako bih mogao da se posmatram. Oba dela su izgledala PRAVA, to mi je navuklo neopisiv strah. Mogao sam da se pipnem za lice, ali sam istovremeno utvrdio da se onaj drugi ja, pomerio dok je sedeo. Nisam više pokušavao da utvrdim koji deo mene je onaj pravi, hteo sam sebe da ubedim kako je moguće postojati u dva potpuno različita nivoa, u dva različita prostora, posedujući zajedničku svest.

The universe knows

We started climbing up some rocks
The whale stood next to the car, checking couple of times if it's locked. We stopped a while on an elevation.
Everybody went his own way
looking for his own space.
Shelley went to the very edge, where the cliffs go down steep to the ocean.
She looked as a white dot on blue background. I felt... white dot on blue background. Or a crack in the blue. I felt sick, that's how I felt. I wanted noone to be next to me in case I vomit.
I went down by the left side to the ocean, jumping over stranded trunks. I sat down and started observing the water surface.
Someone sat next to me.
I could see every droplet. I could see atoms each droplet was made of. I could see the ocean in parts, just like the brain.
The waves crushed against the rocks and stripped naked in front of me. I got to know all their parts. The atoms were bigger than what I've seen. I've discovered new particles tinier than atoms, now a name must be given to these, and a patent protected. Whom should I inform about this ? By the powerful look, I again created wawes out of smaller components and took it back to the ocean. I played with one wave, second, and finally, with the entire ocean. I had the control. Control... and then, I knew I should be feeling strange. but nothing was strange to me. I knew that the human eye is more perfect than any telescopic microscope, that's all. The eye in my service, the control....
I was sitting (doing nothing) for hours. Then I decided to get up. I brought a decision, I thought about the relevance of the body posture change, angle, distance. I brought the decision to get up. I made a couple of steps along the shore, and, what induced me to turn ?
Some strong feeling, a magnet, lack of control. I took a look to where I was sitting till a sec ago. I WAS STILL SITTING THERE, AIMLESSLY STARING IN THE OCEAN
I felt sweat, my hair stood on end. I realised that one part of me stayed there and the other part left in order to be able to observe myself. Both parts seamed the RIGHT one . This has caused me a tremendous fear. I could touch my face, but at the same time I verified that the other me has moved while sitting. I haven't tried to ascertain any more which part of me is the right one, I just wanted to convince myself that it is possible to exist on two different levels, two different spaces, but having the common consciousness.
 
Thanks!
