"The fact is that what I call myself, or my life, is a little pulse in the vast continuum of space-time-energy. There are billions of other pulses, some very large and some very small, and others in between, in this Vastness. By happenstance, I am related in different ways with a few other pulses. Like others, I shall disappear, and perhaps reappear elsewhere in another form. I have no idea whether there is a continuity or a direction in this movement of the pulse.
"What am I called to do in my own little corner of space-time? How do I listen? How do I respond? Apart from engaging with this question there is no meaning to my life."
