INFINITY ENDS: excerpt of a conversation between Paul, the sad dad, and his curious son, who doesn’t understand, not yet.


“The planet will one day be absorbed by the sun,” said the father to his six-year old son.

“Absorbed by the sun?”

“Horribly, there’ll be much fiery death.”

The son nodded, “Like in X-men.”

“Sort of, except X-men isn’t real, it’s a construct to help bring excitement to otherwise dull lives.”

“Will it be dull when the sun absorbs the planet?”

“Maybe,” the father nodded, glumly.
