Imagine you’re a photon made in the center of the sun. You bounce back and forth struggling every second to make it out of the center of the sun, slowly making your way through. second after second, minute after minute, hour after hour… for 1 Million years, to literally spend a million years, in what can only be described as a living hell.
Somehow after a million years, you make it to the surface. Immediately going from a million year experience of living hell, to seeing the Universe for the first time. Can you imagine how that photon would shudder in disbelief. From going to a sight of living hell, to absolute beauty of the entire universe.
Then to begin your 8 minute journey to planet Earth. Passing Mercury, Venus - basically death, ugly, hostile rocks of hell. To then, approach Earth, and see a beautiful planet like no other in your million year existence. A strange but beautiful sight.
Then as you approach, you see these creatures. All of them so different, probably the most unique arrangement of atoms in the universe. Imagine being that photon and all the things seen, but knowing there is so much in the universe that you would love to see. but you can’t.
Because your journey comes to an end, when you crash into eyes of a Human Being. Hoping this Human being would appreciate your ultimate sacrifice. Only for him to turn around and say, “Fuck that, it’s hot as fuck Today, i’m going back inside & play Xbox. Yup, that’s right reader, you’re an asshole. :-)
