    I find the expansion of the Universe a little disturbing in that eventually we wouldn't be able to see much of the rest of the Universe and might really believe we're alone.

    I'm comforted by the idea of Brahma's night, where we'd be brought together again.

    Science says no, DT ... No Big Crunch. Here's a book for you: Nightfall - Isaac Asimov.

    I feel I must've read that and yet... I'll check it out.

    Besides, what does science know about Brahma anyway?

    You mean western science? I would venture out to say not much.

    Unless we are talking about the Brahma chicken breed.

    I assume that a zoo or a farm might not have been your kind of workplace.

    lol, welll, I was genuinely perplexed, so I asked the guy that lived there, where and what the hell were those things? He mumbled something unintelligible so I just went about my way just wondering and unenlightened. I have to admit there was a plethora of smoke, drugs, and drink in the immediate environment. I did consider the possibility that someone had fed the chicken ducks progenitors some LSD but I never found out and have often wondered about it.
