After the asteroid
Maybe after the next asteroid hits Earth and everything turns to wasteland, maybe all the species will come back. And maybe there’ll be new species.
Maybe the earth will get bigger every time an asteroid hits and there will be a giant species. Maybe robots and lava monsters will rule the Earth. Earth will eventually get too old and start cracking for about 90 years. So they make a weapon to clear up the cracks in the Earth and it hits the Earth and a big wind sweeps the Earth and the cracks are cleared up. So the Earth lasts for another few years until the next asteroid comes along.
Like a thousand billion googolplexes.
And people turned into clams and monsters. Why didn’t they die? Because eventually an air bubble cracked and filled their mouths with dirt.
Then even the asteroids are gone and the universe is just a black, peaceful place.
Now, all this is a long way away, like saying “googolplex” until you’re a Grandpa.
And then space just fades away and it isn’t even black anymore. And then fingers appear, and it’s a big, big, big giant of outer space. And that giant falls and stays on the ground, laying there until all his parts turned into rocks.
And then everything starts over again and there are dinosaurs again.
