(THIS IS NOT PART OF THE STORY, just a hint: you'll probably want to click the picture to get the full effect)
Are you a fan of causality? Here's the way it might appear to anyone moving at regular speed:
the natural order of things is largely determined by what direction we are headed and how fast
Josh is flying, faster and faster and faster than anyone ever imagined imagines imagined.
(is it a dream is it the future is it something else?)
Josh slips free of first his fears which are quickly left behind as fear is not that fast, not quick: fear is slow and plodding and although it is in Josh’s throat and chest and his fingertips when he begins moving the fear is pummeled back by the force we call acceleration which is the natural companion and foe of fear at all times and at its highest it is the enemy too of time.
(faster and faster and faster)
Josh next slips free of air and there is not enough of anything around him to call this notenoughofanything anything but space.
(anyone ever imagined)
Josh next slips free of what people imagine is gravity.
Josh next slips free of anywhere anything we made has ever been.
Josh next slips free of anywhere anything we have ever seen has been.
Josh next slips free of anywhere anything seen or unseen known or unknown been or not been has ever been or not been.
Time is the last to go and suddenly he is free of that.
When time goes causality goes and things can work in any direction.
(Josh is flying)
When time is gone everything happens at once and in no particular order all at the same… not time.
