The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim
➝ 4 Daedric Deities - Clavicus Vile, Boethiah, Malacath, and Azura
In the next few billion years we are going to merge with other galaxies. New stars will be born from the dust in place of the countless that have long since died out and left their planets cold and lifeless
I wonder if others will look to where Earth once was and muse over what used to be there. I wonder how much of us they would be able to recover. That there was water, that there was life? What of our homes? Our cities, our cultures, our languages, our wars and our holidays and our lives? Nothing but dust to be added to the cloud
I wonder, when we look at the sky at night, how many worlds our eyes pass over that died long ago and wait now for us to join them
It’s interesting to learn about the universe because you have to work backwards. Here we are, in this unbelievably massive collection of stars and planets and matter that is already billions of years old, and as time goes on we gain the ability and insight to reach further back in time and try to understand where all of this came from. We know where we are at, we can calculate where we are going, the mystery lies in where exactly it all began. What was the beginning? Was it a beginning at all?
We’re all just children asking where we came from and looking to the sky for an answer that is slowly granted through equations and observation
