The chalkboards of thought and theory stood now in the shadows of the obsolete.

“Can you place a number on something so infinitely finite? For this… is the place of opposites, you see. It’s all relative, in the end, I guess.”

And as they sat there, father and son again, the expansion and separation weaved those many tunnels, now unwritten in the wearing down of time. There, within the bubbling frothing Planck space, another quantum wormhole collapsed under the dawning sun of a dying seed, as his father spoke of space exploration. Others would bloom, but the story of this world had met its epilogue. But for them, the night carried on with its own magic. But time was never linear. In loops and circles, it brought us back. Those interconnected realms that beckoned wanders into its beguiling tunnels. The temporality of space would always continue, just as love would for every human. And that which was sick would be healed in time’s inverted places.
