“This work was inspired by Eastern mysticism and the theory of causal sets, which bridges the gap between quantum mechanics and the general theory of relativity. All events have causes and effects, and these causes and effects occur simultaneously. Past, present, and future events unfold within the span of an instant, and the flow of time is not continuous. Each being is a composition housed within its own separate cell, and though we may feel isolated at times, inevitably and without exception, bonds of fate form, with the connections we make between each other bringing our world into existence. Therefore, God creates nothing without purpose, and if any one of us is lost, according to the law of cause and effect, in the end it will bring about great changes in the world. Every being is unique and irreplaceable. What we must not forget is that we are living amid an endless funeral procession through a sea of stars. However, to exist in a world as ephemeral as sea foam, we must live cherishing each moment as it happens. We must cherish each and every one of the bonds of fate which join us together."
