A lesser enlightenment

I often use closed captioning when watching videos on YouTube. It’s an amazing technology, but frequently the robot transcribers get things wrong. A lot of inadvertently funny and poetic constructions will pop up, and I like to write down the best ones then rearrange the nonsense into a poem. The raw material came from a Gary Weber talk: “What No Thoughts Mean: 3 Different Kinds of Thoughts.”
