Retrodictions, canto 1, quatrain 1

Mechanic’s predetermined goal;
to the cosmic clock be a slave:
but tiny chaos saves the soul
for is light a mote or a wave?

Commentary by Brother Quark:
This incomprehensible babble is typical of our charlatan. As near as I can tell he is saying that the angel of darkness is perplexed as to the nature of the soul.

Commentary by N. Hellerstein:
This one’s about the collapse of classical determinism due to quantum uncertainty.
