IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS ONLY THE UNIVERSE… and then, a baby was born. I’m not sure who it was, but it was not me. But if it was you, or one of the people reading this right now, then I’d like to say that I want to help, so that in the end, there will be not just be empty UNIVERSE (space is scary).
