Space: The Primal & Feared (Visions Of The Late L.J. Fathomsworth) # 9

“For all the terrors that lurk in the shadows of our imagination, perhaps the greatest fear is that of being truly alone. When I was a child, I stared into the night sky wondering why such a bleak, desolate, and starless vista stretched out before me. The unmistakable stench of nihilism clung to my every conjecture. It wasn’t until years later that I realized living near a paper mill accounted for both the low night-time visibility, and the odor.”

“The vast, unbounded eye of the universe is ever vigilant and unblinking. If we were to see what it saw, our petty squabbles over territory, religion, and ideology would abruptly cease. The bitter struggle for superiority between Ionic and Covalent Bonds, however, would most likely continue apace.”

My, what beautiful… eye you have.

“The ‘psychedelic movement’ sprang forth from mind-altering substances and a generation of music, culture, and activism. The tragedy of Tie-Die, on the other hand, can be credited to the nefarious Nebulas dangling their wares throughout the malls of the multi-verse.”

Thanks. For. Nothing.

“Anyone can look into the void, but very few see it for what it is… The contents reveal the container, as an overeager conversationalist might reveal the sovereignty of silence… Or a hackneyed writer reveals the significance of his rival.”

Forecast: nebulas with a chance of horror.

“We dwell within the shadows of knowledge, fumbling about, looking for the truth without knowing if we want to hear it. In essence, all the accumulated wisdom of mankind was discovered by stubbing our toes on the sharp corners of reality. Every proclamation of profundity can be translated as, ‘Ouch!!!'”

“The speed at which our home-world spins through the darkness surrounding us is staggering. Which is why it’s so confounding that we should all be so slow.”

“There’s no Earthly way of knowing, which direction we are going…”

“But of all the terrors that populate our ever-expanding universe, there is one that chills me to the core more than all others and that is our preoccupation with ourselves. This is what I hope to convey through my one-thousand and nine page auto-biography containing hundreds of photographs and reflections on my life.”
