Launch
my satellite
into star-field
starburst substrata;

A supernova

Flowering
in the silence
stretched thin between
distant Earths
along the super-string.

I am the collapse
both before and thereafter,
caught in moments
compressed in tunnels

By Krasnikov.

First piece of literature for a while; I had been all out of inspiration. This is, essentially, about both superluminal travel and pensive hindsight. Alter the ratio of each as necessary.

This is a probable candidate for future revision.

Serguei Krasnikov is a proponent of his self-named space-travel tunnels for faster-than-light motion. However, in the case of more than one such tunnel these short-cuts would become time machines and causality & vacuum fluctuation would remove them from existence entirely.

Theoretical cosmology can be more exciting than one would first assume.

Reading this, all I can think about is that twisty :/ feeling I get when I've put something off for long enough that it's turned into lead in my stomach/heart/mind. It grows and stretches and seems like an endless, endless loop.

Nicely done.

(This, shamefully, seems to be the first of your lit devs of this project that I'm commenting on.)

Beautiful. It doesn't ignore or diminish the beauty of scientific truth. I like it. *nods*
