…It was at this time that Turner thought back to what he learned about the origins of life. I mean think about it, every single human being, every single living creature, every single thing in the whole of existence is created from the same stuff. Turner knew this, and it really made him think, he thought about how in one moment everything was created all at once everywhere, he thought about how in one moment everything expanded unto the nothing. He thought about how Hydrogen molecules somehow got pushed together and heated up to create stars. He thought about how these stars had dust fields revolving around them and how in a billion years heavenly bodies formed from the dust. He thought about how after more billions of years one singular planet somehow was in the right spot to support the smallest and simplest forms of life.
He then thought about how over millions of years these life forms got complex and smarter and grew legs and lungs and brains and thumbs. Then they started talking and making weapons and created culture and writing and tools, and civilizations. He then thought about how here he was millions of billions of trillions of years later after that one fantastic moment when everything was created, and how he was just like the dusty ground beneath his feet, he was just an assembly of different elements arranged to make something much much bigger. Turner was dust, Turner was rain, Turner was the clouds in the sky, Turner was the stars and planets, and galaxy and even the universe.
And in the moment he realized that even though he was just one person on a small planet on the each of a galaxy in an ever expanding universe he was not insignificant. He was one out of 6 billion plus people, but he was the ONLY Turner Moorson, and his life was his, and his destiny was his, and only he could figure it out and only he was the one that could choose what he was going to do. He was in control, but this discovery made him come to an even bigger question. A question that we have been asking since the start of our story, what the fuck does he do now?
