i looked at the plate.
there was a small pinkish clump.
a colony of bacteria.
seemingly lifeless, but contained millions of living things.
so big, yet so small.
meaningless, but meaningful.
is this how we look to the rest of the universe?
an obsolete speck of dust?
a tiny colony of living things.
oblivious to everything else that surrounds us.
are we in an agar plate?
...simply the experiment of a divine presence?
