Always curious, looking into everything that came before our eyes, sniffing out each corner but only ever faintly - not setting down roots in any land or staying long enough to see the substratum of things; the outer limits would suffice."
Author: Ernesto Guevara

They exist in a constantly moving universe full of constantly moving objects."
