“Few people realise the immensity of vacancy in which the dust of the material universe swims.”

“By the toll of a billion deaths man has bought his birthright of the earth, and it is his against all comers; it would still be his were the Martians ten times as mighty as they are. For neither do men live nor die in vain.”
--H.G. Wells, The War of The Worlds

Needs more interaction

Needs a lot more interaction. Wasn't quite what I thought it would be. Too much text.
