Exponential growth

Exponential Growth

One and duality
duality finds exponents
a power of creation..
Finite exponents enable 2

reality dividing

Particles in physics
divide with new names..

Does quantity remain..?
Each grain of sand
exponentially birthed

Perhaps very soon
perception will shift
observers will claim
their reality link..
Masquerading duality 
its mask removed 
will astound us revealed 
as never other than one...

The emperor quickly granted this seemingly benign and humble request. One version of the story has the emperor going bankrupt as the 63 doublings ultimately totaled 18 million trillion grains of rice.
At ten grains of rice per square inch, this requires rice fields covering twice the surface area of Earth, oceans included. Kurzweil contends that we’re in the middle of that chessboard. [...]
