"And the stars are projectors, yeah, projecting our lives down to this planet Earth." - Modest Mouse
Here's a brief bit from a piece I just wrote over at Future Hi:
Our very civilization is merely a blink in the eye of Shiva, a momentary footnote in the galactic record, a spark in a Universe that remains to us quite empty. Our struggles and conflicts, our preoccupations and distractions, are like grains of sand swirling in the tides, slowly and steadily grinding away at the rocks. Over a thousand years they may leave their mark on the shoreline... But in a hundred thousand years that shoreline will be gone, erased by much greater forces. For all of our creation and destruction the Universe simply watches as the tides ebb and flow, carrying life into ever new harbors.
