    Kind of looking around... What one do...?

    Could do another flash fiction. No money in that, already had to ask HP to delete as to duplicate issues.

    So..., what to do?

  7. paradigmsearch profile image89
    paradigmsearchposted 11 months ago

    I shall sort this out...

    - Temporarily retracted. -

    - Permanently  retracted -

    Jeez, somebody pay me. Sorry.

    And for anyone who hasn't already figured it out... This is a messing around, nonsense, social, nobody cares, just having fun thread.

    We should have at least one of those here. Too darn grim otherwise.

    This should have been put in the op. Sorry about that.

    Sometimes when I open the basement door, there is nothing on the other side.

    his has been somewhat disconcerting to say the least. Incidentally, it is interesting to note that the color of nothingness is black. Makes sense.

    This has happened to me on several occasions. I finally decided it was time to do something about it.

    So the next time it happened, I put my hand in. My hand disappeared. The blackness of nothingness was all there was. I pulled my arm back. My hand was still there. Thank goodness for that. Was a stupid thing to do. The blackness remained.

    stood there and pondered for awhile.

    I stepped through. I was in that kind of mood...

    I was enveloped in blackness. I also didn't seem to be standing on anything anymore.


    I then somehow started to feel motion...


    At first it was barely detectable. But then it became more so. I could not figure out how I knew this. Motion is relative and I could not see or feel anything. Yet I knew I was moving.


    And then the blackness began to fade... Somehow I was no longer limited by the visible spectrum. I could see it all, from gamma rays to radio waves. I even saw the interplay of gravity. I never knew that gravity rippled...


    All of this made perfect sense, since I didn't seem to have eyes or the rest of my body anymore. I truly seemed to have become one with all; no longer hampered by the filtering of perceiving through senses.


    Then, as far as time and space were concerned; reality left, and relativity arrived.


    I could now perceive at whatever time and spatial sense I wished to perceive. I made solar systems spin like atoms; backwards and forwards. I turned molecules into picturesque Tinker-Toy sets. I wandered through the static maze of an exploding star. There seemed to be no limits to what I could do.


    So I began to ponder...


    I then began to search.


    I explored every meteor, comet, asteroid, moon, planet, sun, solar system, and galaxy.


    I explored every molecule, atom, electron, boson, quark, lepton, and strangelet.


    I explored every universe. I explored every dimension.


    I did not know what I was looking for, but that did not matter. I knew I would recognize it when I saw it.


    And then I saw it. It was small, round and shiny. I reached for it...


    I was home again.

    Not a Typical Day...

    I gazed out the motel front window across the desert towards where Los Angeles was. It was fairly early morning. The usual desert air was crisp and clean. All was still.

    “Did I get far enough away in time?” I wondered. I started to turn towards the television to check out the latest chaotic news.

    Then came the flash. It was an airburst.

    “Safe!” thought I.

    Then I saw the rolling dust cloud filled with debris...

    I dived down below the window and huddled against the low wall.

    The roaring impact shattered the window, slamming the glass shards across the room, embedding themselves in the opposite wall.

    The roaring got louder…

    I was wrong.
