“It shouldn’t be like this."
“There isn’t a way things should be. There’s just what happens, and what we do.”
“Lucky humans, who can close your minds to the endless deeps of space! You have this thing you call… boredom? That is the rarest talent in the universe!

You build little worlds, little stories, little shells around your minds, and that keeps infinity at bay and allows you to wake up in the morning without screaming!”
