Have you ever noticed that things seem so much clearer at night? It's the darkness around you, the endless quiet, the feeling of being alone in your bed that make you face yourself.

When there is no one else around, we have no comparison.

It's just us.

Just you.

Alone.

No one else knows what you think in the night.

In the darkness, we see more than we do in the light.

We can see ourselves.

We can see ourselves starkly illuminated against the endless swirl of the universe.

There is no one else. Just you and the void.

You, the void, and the truth.
