Something Unimaginable

Julia Ballard

December 8, 2013

What I imagine to be waiting for us are the answers we may, or may not, be ready for. We will be tested as to what we are prepared to take in given the fact that other planets, just as real and diverse as our own, will have their own beliefs ( should they be populated ) and unique realities. They will be very different from our own. What awaits us is a reality that only our limited experience has prepared us for. So, ultimately, what awaits us is death of out dated ideas, and re-birth of a new time for human kind.
