When the Tribunal entered the temple of Mother Saatha, they cried with shrill admiration at their departed cousin. With sobbing exuberance, they raised their hands to the heavens; hoping for a sign, a flitting curse, a charity from above. They received nothing in return for their conquest.
Miles away, over the hills of the cracked earth, dissected by the veins of cleaving rivers and brooks, lay their fallen. All hope hinged upon the One. The boy with the golden satchel. Now his remains were divided and inherited by the Tribunal; all of equal weight and proportion.
I got bored and started philosophizing about the existence of everything. I had this strange conclusion that will definately make people call me an idiot: time can't be a straight line, it could be a circle. Why?
- Everything is caused by something.
- Causes are caused by something.
- There must be a very first cause.
- That cause can't exist if nothing caused it.
- A thing caused by nothing is nothing.
- There is no first cause.
- If there wasn't a first thing that caused everything, nothing really exists.
- There are many things that do really exist and there existence is perceptible.
- If the very first thing can't be caused by anything in the past, then it must be caused by something in the future.
- If the past was caused by the future, then time hasn't got a beginning and an end.
- Something without a beginning and an end could very likely be a circle.
Don't take this too seriously, because I don't know anything about science. I don't know, I have the feeling that I stole this theory?
I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."
