When at university about 1970 I asked why conflict pervades our lives. After years I found the answer is simply the question of meaning I call "the last why" since it will never be answered. Still, we try and have tried to "fill the void" behind "Why am I?" in ways that conflict, since it was first asked by 'Eve'. Thus we've created our open-ended history of conflict we will soon close if we don't instead choose the "ideal reaction to the void".

In 2005 I decided to see if I was a fool for asking by seeking reaction to my analysis the only way an anonymous carpenter could, on this website. I first tried to attract visits with prose posts but changed to
my poems because reason in rhyme is memorable. I've had to advertise so I could be twice the fool but I remain undecided. Doug.E.Barr

The rose is "the last why". We can 'pick' it and create "the void" then in trying to fill it
destroy our lives; or we can simply "reach out...", smell the rose and realize our lives.
