I haven't been able to edit this until today, but the moment I saw the stack was for 5 hours and it was a bunch of Galaxies, I knew it had to be dedicated to the GM, and that he deserves a fair amount of credit for this picture ever occurring. So, thank you sir.

But the reason I haven't been able to edit this until today is because I have been on a stream of consciousness for the last few days because a friend made me realize I had to record a certain event before it was gone forever. And truly I have had to put another priority as #1.

That priority is God, and I have no idea how to do that, but I have written 7000 or so words called "The Double Slit Experiment" and it is about losing my mind or maybe about something a little more profound. And maybe the entire thing is a metaphor, and maybe the entire thing is a big lie.

But it took me 34 years to write, and pretty much everyone In my life has played a role, and it contains trading astrophotos for plane tickets. And it probably isnt real plane tickets I am referring to, but that is "secret knowledge" and doubting Thomas will never tell. But I will tell you, I shared it with the pastor of my Church, and if you read it, you will know how big my balls are, or maybe just how scared I am of not putting the one, in the one spot. And if you know of any other church Elders writing stuff like this, I want to meet them.

And the author is anonymous because if anyone likes it I want none of the credit, but if someone doesn't like it, give me all the blame.

and here is the google drive link to the PDF.


Clear Skies my friends.
