If I were to recede back, back, back and yet further back
In regression, to before I was born
Prior to me existing
What was my primeval, primordial entity?
A random particle?
A form of subtle matter?
Was I a mass of nothingness?
Or was I only in the imagination?
A mere thought awaiting creation
To be breathed into life with prana?#
Infinity to be abbreviated into a soul
*The concept of pre-existence in (Shia) Islam
#The Hindu concept of life force
