“When the star in front of me disappeared, I could look through the atmosphere, and see millions of others in great distances. And I could look into the past. A lot of different pasts. … Some of them traveled for years, some thousands and some billions, before ending up on the surface of my eye. And some of the energy the star, billions of years ago, produced was absorbed into my brain, changing it, making me connected with that star. Some might have exploded thousands of years ago, long gone. Yet, I could still see them, until their final light reaches my planet.” – morn1415
