Have you ever been in awe? I’m not going to get super scientific. I can’t and I won’t. It would take away from the majesty of it all. A certain life, spanning forward and backward, from white hot starts and pitch black frozen endings.
Life is like that, and Nicholas Heybourne’s life was no different. Decision after decision, each causal event bending into the next, the true fear of the unknown tomorrow. It was art. Devine fingerprint of a complicated universe. Beginning, middle, and end. Chapter and verse. All the noise and nonsense spread over a particular thread of a woven complicated eternity.
Every life is that. Awe striking, but you get to witness the infinity of Nicholas Heybourne. Better strap in.
Nicholas Heybourne is dead.
But what is death in an infinite universe. If he existed before, why does it end? What defines a certain souls beginning. Was he there at the Big Bang or the signing at Appomattox Courthouse? Was he watching the dinosaurs or flying a rocket to Saturn? What does stretching out a lifetime of infinity truly ever mean?
Questions? You may have some, but so do I. Getting the answers is the trick. The kind of accomplishment that puts your face on a plaque or they teach about you in school one day, maybe both. If anyone were to know it would be Nicholas Heybourne, the man with the infinite time line.
The human life, a tiny drop of universal time stored in the flurry of electrons and neurotransmitter soup. It holds it all, and in the infinity room you can eat and taste and touch and remember all the things he had ever done. But how he connects events is different than you or I perceive things. A strand connects a strand. Over and over. Rinse and repeat. Wax on, wax off. Et cetera, et cetera.
