About As Likely

Cicero: ...A singularity collapse of the bubbleverse could in theory cause a blowback through the membrane into our dimension--
Yarab: About as likely as a "camel through the eye of a needle."
Cicero: But for argument's sake let's say you wanted to cause a collapse. How would you go about it?

Most Insidious Of All

Every creation myth is really a story of destruction.
I can hear voices.
Then listen-- you might learn something.
That's not accurate. The Judeo-Christian Genesis is pure creation. There was only void before. Nothing to destroy.
Ha. No. You're forgetting the point of the whole story. That myth is the most insidious of all. The destruction actually comes at the end.
The Judeo-Christian myth begins in the void but ends with the expulsion from Eden. It's the destruction of Paradise.
The destruction of peace.

Under My Breath

My father was a religious man.
I got you, hon.
Can you hear me?
Jean, can you hear me?
For me, as a scientist, it never made any sense.
Don't go, Jean.
But for the first time in a long time--
Don't go...
--I hear myself pray.
Please...don't let her go...
Under my breath, at first.
Then louder.
