Consilience ex Nihilo

Nihilism, Nihilism
Is what it comes down to,
An infinite variety
Of language, song, and art,
And all we have to show for it
Is dancing in the dark.
A universe of broken dreams
It could be more or less,
A little space of consciousness,
And the rest is silence-
Our brains refuse to believe it though,
We can not let it go;
A brain's a prism, turning nothing
Into a real rainbow.
