First day of school
Last week, a hot, dense singularity expanded releasing matter, space, and time. Matter, mostly hydrogen and helium atoms, streamed from the origin. The atoms were destined to travel in straight lines forever, but inhomogeneities developed. Instead of following the crowd, these irregularly clustered atoms wiggled slightly off course, throwing the emerging universe into a tizzy. Atoms slammed into each other. Then an attractive force called gravity, or love, pulled them together. Matter accreted; soon nebulas, stars, supernovas, and a planet swarming with life came forth.
Last week, I wore universal chaos down, and brought forth light. That's exactly how it felt.
