From Camp Counselor

Marty took a draw on his pipe. “If these unique compact units of energy, such as our unnamed being, were perhaps freaks created during creation. If they had been human, they might have wondered why the management of time wasn’t handed over to some woman more efficient than Miss Fickle Fate. For surely, to travel thusly, waiting through time unmeasured for a world to land upon and to fulfill its misbegotten destiny, gave the meaningless nature of death a meaning. What could be crueler than to have survived a journey across the void, only to cease existence because of some inherent universal randomness and indifference? Would there be then any difference between life and death?”
