The universe was a vast, empty, dark, and uncaring place. Then life happened, and the universe was changed forever. Then again, the universe changes forever every second of every day. It is also quite big. So much so that it is shockingly easy for one to lose themselves in its ever-shifting expanse. This is why perspective is vital to happiness and sanity. Worrying about one’s immediate surroundings is often far more tolerable than attempting to contemplate all of existence at once.
Unless, of course, one happens to be an unfathomable cosmic being from beyond the veil of reality.
That’s when things get a bit more… complicated.
