Two beings, First and Second, met in space at the edge of a small solar system. First shared with second, in the perfect way that their kind shared, the total concept and nuance of a fascinating little blue and green planet First had been visiting for quite some time. It was covered with creatures of wood and green foliage, and other creatures that moved around all over the surface, eating other creatures to survive. Second was especially fascinated with the idea of one type of creature, a creature that built machines and contraptions and lived in complicated boxes they constructed to make themselves comfortable and protect themselves from the often hostile environment of the planet. Second was most curious that these creature seemed to communicate with one another using noises and symbols. First agreed with Second that they could not imagine there would be enough different noises and symbols to clearly communicate all the nuances and intricacies required for real sharing. First expressed to Second the suspicion that bad communication was probably the source of much conflict First had witnessed while there.
