In the beginning (sounds like a good place to start) there was an idea. There is no beginning but the beginning and that shall be our beginning. A simple, single thought that carried on, information so neatly encapsulated within it that it could self replicate and take on the varying forms, comprising everything we recognize from the tiniest subatomic particles, to our bodies to our world, to the stars and nebulae.
Scientists have proven that the amount of information that can be stored on a single electron is infinite, since a particle can exist in an infinite number of quantum states at any moment, or something like that. They've stored eight bits on a single electron already.
And this space tourist thing is cool. If I had twenty million dollars, I'd get my ass up onto the space station. You know what's absolutey sad though? They changed the name from "Freedom" to the "International Space Station" when other countries hopped on. Just kinda odd, isn't it? It can't be "Freedom" if the russians and the japanese and other countries get into it? Americans have a monopoly on freedom?
