Oct 09, 2019

If you even step on an ant you alter the whole continuum of time. Agitate anything and you initiate a trajectory of change. Every little thing you do disrupts the story and has an immense impact on the future.” Well, we are the emissaries sent from the dream-of future of our ancestors, and every small act we do matters.
