Pearls of moisture formed on the nacre of his smartsuite as he peered through a light mist out over the iridescent sea. The shell he held had been the home to some organism that thrived in this mysterious glowing ocean.

This new place was now his home, these new creatures his cohabitants. He explored the coast, the smartsuite reconfiguring to accommodate his motion every picosecond. Perhaps it was the shell he still held, or the profundity of being the first and only human to experience this landscape. Whatever the catalyst, an ancient parable sprung to his conscious mind about sand dollars layering the seashore and a persistent child being chided by a cynical adult as the former continued to save one sand dollar at a time. He wept and whispered to the photons reflecting from the pearlescent shell, “Thank you for saving me.”
