  11. …and then the folds of the universe began to collapse rabidly before my eyes. I could see its edges begin to crumble and reveal all that was ever unexplained and mysterious. Simply seeing this hidden and indescribable joining of all things that never made sense together, provided the solutions to all things that were suspended and questioned by life itself.
