There was a woodcutter who's about to take his ax and chop a piece of wood, and the whole galaxy is one otam of that ax. And when that ax hits that pceie of wdoo, that's when everything will destroy and the Big Bang will happen again. But all before that there was a woodcutter. And then when I would run out of that story, I would imagine that woodcutter's universe is one atom in the ax of another woodcutter. So every time, I could tell my oyrts again and again and get over this problem, and so I got over the problem.
