The Blossom

Post by eric_marsh » Mon Apr 23, 2018 8:34 am

A trillion tiny lightsails are carried off into the void. Within each is the DNA of a billion different species.

It's a bit like a blossom's pollen being carried to the winds.

When we were younger we arrogantly believed that the stars are our destiny. But the universe doesn't favor a single life form. Life's a thing that spreads and adapts.

We weren't meant for the stars. It took us millenia before we learned that we are simply a part of the Earth.

With it's seeds spread, the Earth withers and dies, as blossoms do once their job is done.
Life is a tragedy for those who feel, but a comedy to those who think. - Horace Walpole
