We are alive! What a beautiful time to be alive in. We are fully alert in this spontaneous awakening of the flesh and mind. We are at the perfect place, at the perfect time. We are buzzing with atoms constantly moving in complex patterns, perfectly adapted to a variety of surroundings. We exist among a thriving microscopic world, rife with warfare and mutualism, as well as an immaculate cosmos too majestic for our feeble minds to grasp. All the stars in our observable universe are still just an insignificant blip on the radar, compared to the vast depths of space.

(the constant reminder)
to gain consciousness.
