A perfectly ordinary day

Ganetyr Syhsspurrfre Sonk woke up in a wonderful mood. But it would turn out to be a perfectly ordinary day, filled with the boring drudgery of everyday life.

Ganetyr got out of his fonking bed, made some breakfast, ate it, and went out. He yawned, the sound simultaneously entering and exiting; differing slightly in pitch, this did not create standing waves, but rather the type of sound usually described as perfectly normal.

As usual, the road outside his house was bright green; occasionally, sparks arose, growing as they ascended toward the sky until eventually disappearing. With a yawn, he looked up into that sky, seeing the purple sunshines and the pink laser rays dancing around on the ground. He groggily walked to work, arriving as usual before the tall, wonky building. The walls were wobbling and changing color, as usual.

He went in through the gnawing door while preserving most of his coat, and as he walked to his circicle, he met his boss, Tyglglobnetboargtnegler. The gurgling pancake greeted him as usual, then gargled a giggling trashcan at the end of the room, signaling a meeting.

Various amorphous blobs assembled, and of course scintillating sfivshfumzbobforse were also present as others gathered. Ganetyr globbed his words carefully, and described the work he had done assembling extra moons from the sugary paste produced by shrieks. His boss was very impressed, offering as a bonus some leftover jam on the spot, which Ganetyr accepted with great pride. At this rate, Tyglglobnetboargtnegler was no doubt going to give him a promotion before the tricouple year-month was over, and Ganetyr hoped that within the next decade, his position would rise so much that it would wrap around, the greatest honor of all.

On his lunch break, he went out looking for trees to devour, and having swallowed four, he was set and decided to spend the rest of the time contemplating...

Many are the great questions in life, such as what the square of its inverse is. Mumbling happily through the toes, Ganetyr thought of the fractal structure of the solar system, and tried to imagine what it would be like if this fractalness was moved from space to time so as to yield a spatial state that could, at least for a moment, be observed in a non-fractal existence. How would it look? Would the planet have a single moon at a distance? Would it perhaps, as a single body, go around in a circle around its sun at a fairly set position? Such outrageously surreal thoughts! What of the universe? The prevailing thought at the time was that a big wobble had at one time taken place, and that the universe had simultaneously expanded and contracted, going to a state that was both from one that was neither, the expansion and contraction being interlinked in recursive patterns.

What had been in that preceding state? It boggled the mind. There was no way to know or imagine. What about the future? What would happen with the universe? What was known from observations was that the universe was growing and shrinking at the same time in interlocking recursive patterns. The pace seemed to be steady, but a slow drift had recently been found in some of what were formerly taken to be constants in the laws of physics, and so, possibly this could change. More radically, if the direction of expansion and contraction would reverse, what would happen? Would the various structures formed in the universe be ripped apart? Would the interlocking recursive connections also reverse, causing everything to go on as before? Or would new structures form? Many were Ganetyr's thoughts, but as usual, he was left none the wiser.

Before he went back to work, he picked up a grain of sand, and holding it to his eye, the fractal patterns danced. Could it be possible to observe the entire structure of the universe at once? Unknown to him, a team of scientists were in the process of doing precisely that; at that moment, they were watching as the complex image unfolded, watching in a state completely free from passion, excitement, or even a hint of anticipation – as all great scientists were. And as they looked objectively upon the structure of everything, the force exerted by their well-ordered minds made it all jump into a more well-ordered state.

And that was it.
