This is Who We are
We began before you knew the nature of a sphere, this sphere, spinning in the inky blackness of endless space. We began knowing the breadth of the thing, the width of the thing, the emptiness of the thing. We began amongst you while you still turned dewy eyes up, and up, and further up still to the moon and sun and stars which you worshipped as Gods. We began before your primitive little brains could comprehend the concepts of the light and the darkness. When you were first learning to kill with stick and stone we were working above you and beyond you mixing the chemical compounds and weapons that we needed to evolve a higher form out of your stinking bodies of diseased and dying meat. We were there from the beginning working to create creatures capable of holding our essences. We have been there from the beginning infusing the meat with the proteins and the power needed to hold us. And we are here still, working these tables, trying to find a way in to you.
This is who we are.
