Did a dinosaur once look at the sunrise and dream of the future? Did it feel itself a king? An emotive animal or an eating machine? A dominant species, grown from the turbulent sea and fiery earth, why should it not live forever?

……………………………..

I think (most of the time) that we have always been dominant and will always be. But, what is human in the future? Will hubris save the story-teller? Do we commit the unwilling suicide or suffer contact with a space-rock?

………………………………

Cockroach and automaton sit at sunrise contemplating the things to come and pondering the foibles of their predecessors. “Is it not obvious that we are the ultimate in creation? Together we will control the universe!”

Until Change and Chaos bring Lifes’ next iteration…

Life

The greatest mystery

Would universes exist

without life to see?
