Explorations was a piece of literature from the Vulcan civilization.

It was a series of poems written by the philosopher Lyras. The writings were noted to provide stimulae to readers and also deepened their understanding of Vulcan culture.

"This is the sixth element,
time crossing time
until all stands still
and we may think.
Study, but touch.
Learn, and later know.
Tame the craggy agonies of toil's time.
Memory and memoring comes late,
comes shattery, scattery.
When all is done, it is not
to die--
It is to die well."

In 2270, Piper was given a copy of Explorations by Sarda. (TOS novel: Dreadnought!)
