This is a dream I had when I was in my mid teens and has very much colored my view of the nature of the universe:
I was a small boy walking down the beach. The sun had just set and a breeze gently ruffled my hair. It was a warm summer's night and I was enjoying
the feeling water washing up over my toes. Looking ahead, I noticed that a small dark stone had been left behind by the retreating waves. I picked it
up and began studying all the different grains across its dark surface. One particular grain caught my and and I began to look even closer
I could make out each molecule present within this grain, and in turn each atom within this molecule. One particular atom sparkeld with tiny pin
pricks of light. I realised they were stars. Around one particular star I saw a number of planets, one of which was blue. Across the surface of this
planet were continents, and on the edge of one was a beach. On this beach I began to make out a figure, and I saw it was was a small boy that looked
very much like myself. The boy was looking at something. It was a smooth dark stone...
I looked around quickly to the stars above. And for the most fleeting of moments, I swear I saw a a face, my face, staring down at me from the
heavens, before suddenly it turned away.
