"There’s nothing more reassuring than realizing that the world is crazier than you are”.

…I’m so sorry Red.They took your voice.

I have to believe in a world outside my own mind. I have to believe that my actions still have meaning, even if I can’t remember them. I have to believe that when my eyes are closed, the world’s still there. Do I believe the world’s still there? Is it still out there?… Yeah. We all need mirrors to remind ourselves who we are. I’m no different.

The stories tell of a golden age long ago when our civalization spanned the system. It was a bright and hopeful time, but it didn’t last. Something hit us. knocked us down and tried to stamp us out. No one knows exactly what, but we do know this: very few of us survived, and those who did owe their lives to the traveler.
