The Fourth Stooge
I felt as if I pulled the trigger for a million years. But only three bullets went into his head. The warmth in my insides swam upward and the sandy sphere that encircled the world collapsed upon itself, leaving only the edges of the sun that now burned with a fiery blackness.
“I am locked out of Heaven. But even if it were laid bare before me, and all the angels sung my praises, and God the Lord Jesus kissed my forehead and bade me enter that place, I would deny Him three times and three times again and yet again and again. For I will not walk through the gates of Heaven until the world walks through first.”
—An alleged passage of the Gospel of Glarayn
“Nothing need exist. Not one thing. Yet here I am, and here we are in this violent and beautiful universe.”
A satellite, made to scan the universe for images of the origin of existence, instead floats blindly in space, thinking, wondering, and pondering its fate.
