ted, i’m going to be honest, i was full of it with that whole nostradamus thing. but i’m starting to think there is some serious planetary crap going on here tonight.
i’m sure that the world will continue to revolve around the sun, though not forever. the inevitability of the failure of the cosmos to hold us indefinitely is weighing on my head. the end may not even come in my lifetime, or the lifetime of anyone i may inadvertently affect hereafter, but there is an end. i daydream that i will reach the end, and watch it all go down. i’ll be there when our star goes out and i’ll be there when the space between a big bang and a big crunch ceases to exist. i’m not sure of me, but i’m sure it will happen whether i’m there or not.
i’m sure there is life out there, somewhere. statistically it’s undeniable, but every now and then a moron thinks it’s impossible. however, i don’t fear an alien attack. i believe that if another species came across earth in their endeavors they would be a civilized society. they would have to be, to simply possess the power to get here at all. assuming their society is civil, there would have to be a taught moral code that keeps people from killing each other, keeping us safe from alien attacks praying on the hope that they’re an empathic species.
i’m sure that there are parallel universes, with locations that allow them to bleed into each other. there’s a fair amount of talk that black holes are these locations, potentially opening wormholes to other universes and similar galaxies. if that’s true, where is the opening into our universe? it’d have to exist. in every other universe things would be pouring in to compensate for the things flowing out of the neighbor universe, creating a visible location that matter spews itself from. and what if the opening to our universe collided with the exit? is that what a big bang is?
i am sure that everything worth doing has already been done, with the exception of starting over.
