New Drabble - Giga-thoughts

A rather philosophical drabble from me in today's Indie Book Bargains newsletter (sign up for a daily drabble and Kindle book bargains at I also found the perfect painting to accompany it on Wikimedia Commons - a big shout out to the artists cédric sorel - I'd love this hanging on my wall!

If you haven't read my other stand alone drabbles then you'll find them all here:


Everything began with a single thought. A pure singularity of consciousness where nothing existed. That first thought begat another and then more. Time formed to mark the passage of one concept to the next.

A universe created to encapsulate the phasespace of infinite possibility. The calculation of perception stratified into a framework of existence.

Immensity expanded into complexity, which in turn compressed into beings with their own thoughts. Nova of consciousness sparked throughout the expansion of the first thought. A billion minds increasing in number creating a confusion of experience.

From ‘I am’ to ‘We are’. What will come next?
