Genesis and everything after that..

Thus whispered the copper maiden,
Seated on a worn out swing,
"Our story's tied to this ring,
And you know what, it's just beginning... "

And then, out of nowhere, they appeared at the center of cosmos. That statement isn't entirely correct. It was when they, the copper maiden and her man, appeared, seated on a huge copper ring, the cosmos reoriented itself with them as the center.

Nothing of that kind had ever happened before. Did you see what happened now? Just like the appearance provided cosmos a sense of direction, it also got a sense of time..! Now, it was possible to track the events more precisely. Any incident could be charted as either happened before the appearance or after.

So armed with a sense of time and space, cosmos evolved. And it would have been the most fascinating sight, but alas there was none to witness it. As you can imagine, sight was a phenomenon that was yet to be evolved. Also same was the case with the other four senses.

Most sensible out of you may now question the above statement. If senses weren't developed yet, how could the Copper Maiden whisper to her man..! And that my friend is the issue with recording of history. It fictionalise the facts to some extent, or rather to an extreme extent. It romanticise situations and make them palatable to the laymen.

Now talking about the evolution of cosmos, with the maiden and her man at its center, it won't be wrong to say that it was an extremely boring process. It took 9 succeeded by 100 million zero years. Of course, year was a concept that originated at first just before 10 million years back, and cascaded in every nook and corner of cosmos with great efficiency.

And all that time the ring, the maiden and her man hung there on the same spot, whispering indecipherable love poems in each other's ears. Right, I am getting carried away here. Their whisperings are indecipherable, so who knows if it is love poems or nagging complaints or a news bulletin!
