Entomoid ...

Introduction (short)

In the beginning there was an infinite ocean of silence… Its waters pouring forth from a single spring; a rift in the fabric of time itself. A billion, billion worlds forming in the blink of the immortal eye, a horizon that knows no bounds.
Eons pasted, and for a time it seemed that only chaos reigned. The titans in their eternal battle, struggling for supremacy as they fell through the vast emptiness. Some consolidating their power, while other fading into nothingness, their guts spread out only to begin the cycle all over again. And through this darkness something marvelous, and all the time unspoken a consciousness arose, its viral seed planted.
The once lifeless ocean boiled over with turmoil, as the computational anomaly took rise within it. And from microscopic beginnings, it set forth on the path of self-awareness. The virus mutated endless times, over a multitude of worlds insuring its survival, and each time becoming more intricate, learning, becoming evermore self-aware. 
And like all virus, on each world its resources it had extinguished, and without pillars it collapsed, each time having to begin the process from meeker beginnings that of course until something extraordinary happened, something unique. This is the account of what happened when two different strains of the virus clashed. This is the story of the day horrible creatures that called themselves humans appeared in our system.  


It was warm, hot even. The two suns shown with brightness over the rough exterior of the brown clay mound dwelling, one of the thousands in which one small female egg lay. This was in the times before the great purge, and chaos would soon manifest itself. The periodic darkness would soon come, and from the veins of our world deep within the ground the male larva would swarm the dwellings fertilizing the eggs, and providing them with the ultimate sacrificial meal. Then during the cool early weeks before the suns fully returned the mothers would arise, each one blinded by hunger, seeking the nourishment needed to birth the next generation. Unfortunately, our planet didn’t have anything of sufficient nourishment, and thus the battles.
Our species had always been capable of the deepest of communication, but with such short lifespans communication was seen as something futile. We tore at each other, and by the end of the first day after emerging more than half of us were dead. Our golden abdomens spewing their contents for our sisters to feast on.

This was the way of our people, and so it would have continued if it were not for an oddity. [...]    

More will be coming, I will add the rest of the introduction to this post when it is done, and then the next post will be chapter 1. 

Entomoid is my attempt at writing a science fiction novel that takes place on a remote planet from the perspective of its inhabitants. I hope to get some feedback from my readers, feel free to leave a comment thanks.
