Blue Marbles

The Brahg were unique as far as alien races went.  They were the only species anywhere in the universe capable of communicating with their alternate universe doppelgangers.  They did this as naturally as breathing, despite the infinite number of parallel realities with which they were in constant contact.

Brahgian Supreme Commander Kohr was in contact with all of his doppelgangers (all of whom were Brahgian supreme commanders).  They enjoyed the symmetry of doing things together.  Today they were going to launch a mission of “domestication” against the hideous bi-pedal creatures called humans.  They were a rather intelligent form of cattle…but no more than cattle none-the-less.  They needed domestication, as almost without exception, they loved nothing better than to fight amongst themselves.

With their drastically superior intelligence, it should prove easy to bring the hewmuns under control.  All they had to do was use their natural animosity towards each other against them.  After they were tamed, they would make ideal beasts of burden to harvest the blue marble that they called their home.

The Khors gave the collective command to attack.  Across an infinite number of parallel universes, an infinite number of Brahgian fleets descended upon an infinite number of Earths.

Khor had been right.  The hewmuns had been so busy destroying each other that they were easily brought under control.  By the time they had thought to band together, it had been too late.

In the infinity of the multiverse, there had been one blue marble where the hewmuns had learned to live in peace with each other.  Working together was simply what they did.

When the infinite number of Brahgian fleets descended, the hewmuns on one blue marble managed to remain free.

  1. Peace is greater than War. Love is greater than Hate. If we could only all learn these lessons then our blue marble would be a better place. Great writing, Bryan. Thanks for linking up. 🙂

  2. I like the bigger message in this piece. There is so much truth to this. We could accomplish so much more if we spent less time in-fighting and more energy promoting harmony.

  3. Love and peaceful coexistence are the only real answers aren’t they?
    I love how Earth is a blue marble and for NOW we’ve learned to stay here..I hope our infighting ins’t our ruin someday, that would be such a shame.
