Old Bersha Looks at Life


Bersha is old and tired. And warm.
She feels her life dripping away.

She knows the end is near and that the knowledge of her experience will vanish. Without new resources, new cold and new snow, hope is an illusion.

She looks at the people walking below her.
They are not powerless, she thinks, but they don’t use their power to sustain their existence, so what good is it. If they can’t secure their supply of resources they will melt from the earth.
They may pride themselves on existing for a couple of hundred thousand years.
Ants, spiders, earwigs and rats think that’s hilarious.



“It takes 9 months to produce a baby from the perspective of Homo sapiens.
It takes over 800 million years of development from the perspective of biological life.”
