THE UNIVERSE SHATTERS
STOP
silence, like a pause of the universe. Ever so quickly the wall-screen goes silent as the taping stops, the noise of the everyday people outside of his existence is quiet, the cars, the people, the world, him, even the low hum of the ceiling fan, and for the briefest of moments all things in the universe just stopped.

For just moment.

Then world comes flooding back. The cars, the voices, the noise, the wars, the newscasts, the world, the universe, all of it.
A smile slowly creeps across his face, as a vast old understanding slowly fills his mind. In the blink of an eye a vast knowledge of the universe begins to unfold.
