Chapter 0: The Beginning of Time
The universe has always existed, and it will always exist. But there is no story without a beginning, so, for the sake of our story, let’s pretend that there was a time when it didn’t exist.
And the story begins…
Before the universe was born, in its place there was…nothing! One day, the universe simply popped into existence. It came to be as a tiny flame that shone in the darkness of the infinite realm of the Great Nothingness, and no one knows who lit it up. As soon as the universe appeared, it thought, “Ha! I am alive! I exist!”
That was the very first thought ever thought. A very special thought indeed because with it began the creation of the Universal Mind (UM).
