Cold, dark, and alone.
All I have are my thoughts and my collections.
Specimens of knowledge. Specimens of nature. Specimens of life.
I am superior. The one you seek.
I travel from distant worlds, through a vast serene landscape.

From the hottest stars to the most desolate terrain.
In constant pursuit of intellect and mind.
Nothing can be done. The motion is set.
I am the beginning, in search for the end.

Studying terrestrial consciousness of emotion and reason.
Everlastingly intrigued by the fabrics of mind,
and captivated by the strings of the heart.
One's inner desire to live or die, these things I've come to feed upon.
More knowledge than any other being. Yet I always crave, starving for more.
