This is how I imagine it: The Beginning. I did take this picture, btw. It is natural gas being ignited inside a massive boiler. It took me a few firing cycles to time it just right. It was hard the first few times, because when this thing comes on it makes a bit of a boom. I kept flinching and screwing it up, but finally got it.
This is also the thing that I see when I rub my eyes too hard, only it's red when I do that. The center has a larger rabbit's hole, too. That is deep if you think about it long enough. Oh yeah, and you get a pair of them as well. Anybody else have that happen? You can still see them, even after you open your eyes. I love doing that to myself.
I can't help but think about the beginning, whenever I see any spark and ignition. Are we aware enough to make that call? How confident are we, really? I'm talking science and religion, here. I don't want to get into that debate. I just want to picture it in my mind: The Big Bang. I want to have my own Big Bang and have a genesis of sorts. You can read into that what you will, but think of how much you can read into and you'll see just how amazing and vast a fantasy that is. What kind of Eden would I have? Who would be my Eve? Who would tempt me ever so seductively?
That fruit....I hear it is to die for.
