|On a scale, grand enough for a deity, the distance between any two
individuals on earth is indistinguishable. You and I may claim to be enemies
while a greater universe beholds us inexplicably bringing violence and
destruction upon and within common abode. Though rare, it’s been done

consequence- we are consumed by the vacuum of space as all the universe
arrives to conclude... "Nothing new occurring here”…
Perhaps it would be appreciated if we humans would show a little respect for a planet 4 billion years in

One thing we can know with certainty and that is, we will not distinguish ourselves as those with unique
and positive contributions within a larger universe if we continue, in both discussion and deed, the
idiotic practice of ransacking the beautiful home still in construction 4 billion years after the chosen
location, location, location.

the sword in hand to vanquish all blasphemous enemies.
