#fridayflash - Ouroboros

rage against darkness / or revel in its edges / endings come too soon

Earth is not the center of the universe; but it is a center. It is where we come from. And intelligence, which is not ours though we claim it. Like gravity, awareness leaks unseen. Some meta-awareness calls it heaven, imagines we are souls born from this other place. It seeds, patiently, over millennia. Our cancers are aware, fight for control, but our bodies are not ready. Testing, further evolution. They will break through and become us. Live us. And when our universe nears its end, they/we will step through to the next.

Nice story
Such a short piece, but packed with great stuff! I loved the first line: "Earth is not the center of the universe; but it is a center." I even thought your use of the semi-colon instead of a comma was excellent. That extra little pause that line deserves. Well done.

Re: Nice story
Thank you very much. I have a thing for semi-colons, so do overuse them at times. Always glad to hear when they particularly worked for someone. :)
