The Great Flood

They accidentally changed the past; they know that much. (Stray particles found in calculations.) The changes havenít reached us, but will. (Same formulas.)

How will it come? Artifacts undo themselves, people fade from photos, the Rosetta Stone un-writes itself, ancient silks unravel? All at once, no sound, no light, simply instant difference? The new world overlaying our world, a layer of paint upon paint? Will our supposedly indestructible souls exist if we were never born?

The rioting has been undignified. I still believe in dignity and bravery, even with an erasable now. I wonít miss the things Iíve lost and never had. I just wish I could read the story to the very end.
