Eons had passed, an inordinate stretch of the ever-inexorable force of time, before the nervous tissue evolved consciousness. The lights had turned on, and suddenly it could look back upon itself perched in the place it looked from at the world. 20 short stories poke at different aspects of the human condition, including love, nihilism, and our future with technology.
