Deep space, with all of its marvels, came at him in lightyear speeds. Stars,
galaxies, clusters, universes, . . from unfathomable distances. Suns,
moons, planets, comets, astroids, . . . and spaceships ! Many, many,
spaceships, flying through space in a huge, purposeful armada.
As he watched the screen Jonathan was aware that every so often one ship
would break off from the formation and head towards a new, unexplored
solar system. It meticuously visited every planet in that particular system,
eventually returning, . . sometimes with strange spacecraft accompaning
it, . . . sometimes not . . but always returning to the armada.
A never-ending cycle that reminded him of bees pollenating flowers.
And then he saw Saturn, and Jupiter . . . and earth. He watched as space-
craft landed on earth, thousands of years ago. He watched as some forms
of life were left here on the planet, when the ship departed. He watched as
some vanished into the sea. He watched as some sought underground
shelter. And he watched as the human race began its development. He saw
how all lifeforms, though separated and independent, still remained a part
of the whole.
And he cried.
