introduction for grown-ups

 

the idea of presenting information in this style is so that parents can read the story to children

 

when walt disney told children a story the children preferred his telling the story rather than watching the film (who is the best story-teller in the world?)

 

notes

 

there will be a far greater number of people who will live between 2000 a.d. and 3000 a.d. than have lived between 1 a.d. and 1000 a.d.

 

this story is being written for those hundreds of billions of people who will live between now and 3000 a.d. while they are children

 

the story will present, as scientifically accurate as possible, how we got here, what we are and what the future holds

 

it thrills me to bits when i think of unbiased minds receiving this knowledge for the first time... that "on the first day" business is well past its sell-by date

 

every little detail of everything isn't known

 

for instance, crucially important information necessary for the application of Genetic theory isn't known

 

however, the information that is needed to secure people who love people to secure a place in the future is known

 

such is much of the nature of the knowledge herein

 

the broad outline can be understood by anyone

 

the details represent the sum of our knowledge

 

introduction for children for children who can read

 

CHAPTER 1

 

chapter one: in the beginning

 

Space: the big nothing

 

a long, long time ago, before there were any people, before there were any birds flying, before there were any fish swimming in the sea

 

before there was this world we live and even before there were any stars in the sky, there was the sky and it was completely empty with nothing at all in it, and that was what was there first

 

an empty sky with nothing in it at all

 

so we called it no thing

 

no thing is so big no one can tell how big it is

 

no thing is bigger than anything you have ever seen and it's bigger than anything you can imagine

 

no thing is so big there wasn't room for anything else

 

no thing was all alone

 

no friends to play with

 

no one to talk to

 

no thing didn't feel lonely because no thing didn't have any feelings

 

and no thing didn't think it was lonely because no thing can't think

 

the only thing that we can say about no thing is that it is no thing

 

a great, big, no thing

 

***

 

this is going to take a lifetime

 

NOTES

 

NO THING ISN'T a somewhere, IT'S THE EVERYWHERE

 

no thing DIDN'T HAVE A BEGINNING, IT IS THE BEGINNINGLESS

 

no thing DOESN'T HAVE AN END, IT IS ENDLESS

 

THAT SHOULD BE THE END OF THE STORY, BUT...

 

SOMETHING WASN'T RIGHT... SOMETHING WAS MISSING...

 

THEN IT REALISED... IT WAS, BUT IT WAS NOT BEING

 

SOMETHING WITHIN IT BEGAN TO STIR...

 

PARAGRAPH HERE?

 

NOTHING HAD TO BRING SOMETHING INTO BEING, BUT WHAT?

 

WHATEVER IT WAS IT COULDN'T BE BEGINNINGLES, NO THING WAS THE BEGINNINGLESS

 

IT COULDN'T BE ENDLESS, NO THING IS THAT AS WELL

 

NOR COULD IT BE EVERWHERE

 

NO THING IS ALREADY EVERYWHERE

 

IT HAD TO BE SOMETHING WHICH HAS A BEGINNING AND HAS AN END AND CAN'T BE A EVERYWHERE

 

PARAGRAPH HERE?

 

NOW, NO THING IS NOT JUST THE BEGINNINGLESS, AND THE ENDLESS AND THE EVERYWHERE, IT IS ALSO FLAT

 

BECAUSE NOTHING IS FLAT IT MEANS THAT IT...

 

 

CHAPTER 2

 

 

NOTES

 

AND THE THING WAS NUMBERS

 

NUMBERS ARE FUNNY THINGS

 

THEY CAN BE ANYTHING

 

THEY CAN BE THREE PEOPLE OR THEY CAN BE THREE LOLLIPOPS, OR THEY CAN BE THREE HOUSES

 

THE ONLY THING THEY CAN'T BE IS NOTHING OR ENDLESS OR SOMEWHERE

 

THERE IS ONE NUMBER THAT IS SO BIG NO ONE CAN FIND AN END TO IT

 

IT STARTS WITH A 3 AND GOES ON AND ON AND ON

 

WE HAVE A NAME FOR THIS NUMBER

 

WE CALL IT PI

 

NOTES

 

CAN YOU THINK OF SOMETHING WHICH HAS GOT A BEGINNING AND HAS GOT AND END AND CAN'T BE ANYWHERE ?

 

THE WORD "WHERE" DENOTES LOCATION

 

A WHERE MUST BE COMPARITIVE

 

IT'S NOT POSSIBLE TO ASSIGN A LOCATION IN AN ENDLESS NOTHING
