      As a Dear Friend and Gifted Lover once taught me as he inspired a poem with his statement:

      EVERYTHING IS TEMPORARY. ALWAYS.

      A thought came, infinitely distant, but infinitely clear. "THIS IS THE ORIGINAL GALAXY OF MAN."

      But it was the same after all, the same as any other, and Zee Prime stifled his disappointment.

      Dee Sub Wun, whose mind had accompanied the other, said suddenly, "And Is one of these stars the original star of Man?"

      The Universal AC said, "MAN'S ORIGINAL STAR HAS GONE NOVA. IT IS NOW A WHITE DWARF."

      "Did the men upon it die?" asked Zee Prime, startled and without thinking.

      The Universal AC said, "A NEW WORLD, AS IN SUCH CASES, WAS CONSTRUCTED FOR THEIR PHYSICAL BODIES IN TIME."

      ”Yes, of course," said Zee Prime, but a sense of loss overwhelmed him even so. His mind released its hold on the original Galaxy of Man, let it spring back and lose itself among the blurred pin points. He never wanted to see it again.
