The child rolled the shiny red ball into the bowl. It was playing with the ball for a while and was now bored. Other shiny balls in the bowl seemed to fight for the child’s attention. But something else had caught the child’s fancy.
The red ball was glowing. Something was brewing inside. The ball was largely empty space inside, but littered with bubbles of glowing stars, strange gaseous clouds, dark mysterious corners, & streaks of light.
Among the glowing stars were a few dots which looked different. They were alive. There were small things roving about their surface. The small things seem to be growing, building, changing shape, evolving.
The small things seemed to come in different shapes & sizes. Some were smaller, like a child. Many such children seemed to be playing, laughing, and having a good time.
One child was sitting in the corner, playing with shiny balls.
