Very short story prompt (11)

pale_blue_dot
(Image from Wikipedia.   Pale Blue Dot is Earth, the tiny speck right hand side below the middle right boarder.  Taken on February 14th, 1990, by the Voyager 1 space probe from a record distance of about 6 billion kilometers (3.7 billion miles, 40.5 AU)

 

The tumultuous sphere of insignificance.  A fragment of nugatory, a meaningless vessel within the oceans of time.  It will be remembered by nothing.  A slight flash and it will be gone.  The Cosmos an uncaring and indifferent entity, a natural construct that holds no favors.  Humanity lost, assuming it’s deities care, when they don’t exist.  Just the human.  It’s fight shouldn’t be with itself.  Instead it should rebel against the Universe, become great, lead it’s generations beyond futures.  Worshiping the now, understanding the void.  Achieving it’s power through it’s imagination, creating the machinery that will guide us towards our next evolution.  Wipe clean away the superstitions.  Meditate on the moments before they fade.

We must have hope.
