Various translations have Plato saying that Socrates last words were,
"Crito, I owe a cock to Asclepius; will you remember to pay the debt?", and,
"Crito, we ought to offer a cock to Asclepius. See to it, and don't forget.",
which don't really say quite the same thing, and were translated by different
scholars at different times, yet when put in context of one another, not only
improve one's understanding both of the content and intent of the quote,
coincidentally they rhyme.
So, what was the point of it? God only knows.
That's an expression of faith wrapped in skeptical clothes,
which more to the point specifically means
that data input/output resides beside genes.
I mean, what it is I am trying to say
is that I bought new blue jeans here the other day,
which rhythmically, rhymingly relates the two,
correlatively speaking, between me and you.
"God" only knowing might fill one with doubt,
but read some of Socrates. Hear the man out.
But care to the context, though others may scoff.
No doubt, he once certainly ticked people off,
and left little else but a hearsay bequest.
Recall what he asked for, his final request.
And that's all I'm asking, no more and no less, on
the chance you could hear his personal confession.
