Strange Matter

 

            “So I was thinking today, and follow me on this: don’t you think it could be true that like the tentative and unstable strange matter, there may exist highly reactive yet persuasive people who virally infect stable beings into strange beings like themselves?”  I throw the question at you while spreading margarine on artificially enriched wheat derivative bread.

            “Personality by infection? That’s a little absurd; humans are not mere matter. You’re disregarding the soul as if it were a piece of gristle.” Your dark brows furrow in mockreal exasperation.

            “I’m not disregarding the soul, for how can I act upon that which simply does not exist?” I ask. You scowl deeper at this and I laugh. “We’ve been here many times before, friend, and we’ll meet here again I’m sure.”
