It started fifteen billion years ago.

Help me, Doctor! I’m getting universal.

It ends in remote but forseeable futures.

That’s your trouble You’re so fucking cosmological!

All this crap about transcendent levels of being.

Beyond but no incompatible with science.

Don’t make me laugh! As a protein strives towards nucleic acid.

Anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade.

Sometimes inept buffoons. Hicks from the sticks.

Those with real white privilege can alleviate guilt.
